Spotlight on Wellbeing at 2016 Mental Health Matters Awards

Wellbeing was a prominent theme at the 2016 Mental Health Matters awards that were held earlier this year.

NSW Wellbeing Collaborative member Barry Taylor was presented with the NSW Community Champion Award for his work developing the South Western Sydney Local Health District Wellbeing Collaborative.

The Collaborative brings together a range of community groups and government agencies to tackle local challenges and support wellbeing in south western Sydney via its Five Ways to Wellbeing program.

Other winners with a wellbeing focus included the SistaSpeak/BroSpeak Cultural and Mentoring Programs at Moree Secondary College, Western Sydney University’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Student Ambassador Program and Healthy Minds, a workplace wellbeing program implemented by Optus.
