Wellways are offering a free Wellways Discovery Program. The program provides a unique opportunity for participants to share and learn from the experiences of other people living with mental health challenges and recovery, along with carers and/or family members. It takes place in a supportive environment that promotes learning and positive action. The program is facilitated by a person with lived experience, who assists each participant in navigating through the process.

Peer learning programs have been shown to make a big difference to wellbeing and are able to foster beneficial outcomes, by assisting individuals to work through experiences and gaining new insights and perspectives in a supportive, understanding, and positive atmosphere.

Wellways Discovery invites people to explore ways to improve wellbeing in a supportive environment.

The information session commences on Monday 4th of March at the Devonport Paranaple Centre at 1pm – 2pm. Then it is followed by 4 consecutive sessions every Monday between 1-3pm.

The program supports people to:

  • Develop relationships based on a shared experience
  • Strengthen sense of identity
  • Explore recovery and wellbeing, personally and as a family
  • Understand how stress and trauma operates and plan for support
  • Recognise and value past experiences, resilience, and wisdom
