About Healthy Minds Geelong
Mental health is a normalised part of everyday living across the Barwon South West community
To provide Geelong with relevant and effective resources that promotes the importance of mental health and create a more informed, connected and enlightened community
Who we are?
Healthy Minds Geelong was formed in 2015 by a passionate team of six individuals who all want to normalise mental health across the Geelong region.
As members of the Leaders for Geelong 2014/2016 group, we were tasked with developing a project that will improve and advance our fantastic region and from there Healthy Minds Geelong was founded.
We also represent our employers Barwon Health, TAC, Davidsons, Worksafe, Derbyshire Homes and My Home Pantry.
Why do we exist?
We want to normalise mental health across the Geelong community.
Although our community has come a long way in decreasing the stigma associated with mental health, we believe there is still a long way to go.
As passionate mental health advocates, Healthy Minds Geelong aims to promote mental health as an important and essential part of everyday living across the Barwon South West community.
How can we help?
We are not doctors, nursing, counsellors or psychologists and nor do we want to be but what we are is dedicated.
Healthy Minds Geelong is an information sharing site which will provide you with up to date information on local mental health support services, all the latest news on effective mental health and mindfulness strategies, national and international articles and access to local events focused on normalising mental health.
