Community Wellbeing Collaboratives: Research
The CRRMH were supported by the Mental Health Commission of NSW to conduct a review of community wellbeing initiatives, in order to produce a guide which could then be tailored to specific localities. The CRRMH see this public health approach as a necessary step towards prevention of mental illness and promotion of positive mental wellbeing.
The research team have been working with Our Healthy Clarence (Grafton), Muswellbrook Healthy & Well, Lithgow, Margaret River, and various Act-Belong-Commit initiatives to both learn from their experience and contribute to the creation and continued development of their initiatives.
