Programs

As part of the Whittlesea Mental Health and Wellbeing Local, link workers are employed to support meaningful social connections and wellness for people aged 26 and over through social prescribing.

Social prescribing is a way to connect people with non-clinical community activities to support health and wellbeing. This can include art or outdoor activities, information sessions, existing community groups and more.

The program can also connect existing guests and carers with events and activities at the Mental Health and Wellbeing Local.

Link workers strengthen pathways between mental health and wellbeing services and community initiatives, promoting a sense of belonging and allowing people to thrive.

If you or someone you know might benefit from our community link program, you can contact our link workers:
