Ways to Wellness
We know that health and well-being starts with taking care of ourselves as best we can and this includes having social connections. But that isn’t always easy. Where are the exercise classes or the social and community groups you could join? What can you do to improve your health and well-being? That’s where Social Prescribing comes in!
Groups across Mt Gravatt and surrounding suburbs have committed to welcoming new people as part of our network. We do this through our Community and Health Care Link Workers who will help identify activities you might be interested in and connect you with local classes, social groups and clubs within the community to help you reach your well-being goals.
They will meet with you at a place that is convenient to you, to learn about your lifestyle and interests, and support you to engage with meaningful group programs in the community. The Ways to Wellness Project benefits those who:
- May be new to the area
- May have lost touch with friends and/or family
- May experience barriers to getting out and about
- May feel nervous meeting new people
- May not know what types of activities are available in their community
- May be experiencing social isolation and loneliness
