Wellways to Health Program - North West
A low intensity self-management program originally developed by St. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne to assist people in understanding the factors which impact on mental health.
The program considers the balance of mental, emotional, social, occupational, physical and spiritual needs of a person, working towards the best possible condition that participants can achieve by building on people’s strengths and values. It is delivered to small groups of six to ten people in community settings across Tasmania.
