The Active & Healthy Recovery Project offers support to individuals with a lived experience of mental illness who would like to be more physically active. Partners in Recovery funded the Active and Healthy Alliance to deliver the project in 2016. Due to the success this outcomes of the project are still being implemented in the community.
Key outcomes from the project include:
A doctor’s referral is required. If you would like to take part, you should speak with your Queensland Mental Health Service Case Manager or Partners in Recovery facilitator and your doctor, so you can be referred.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people the skills to help someone who they're concerned about. Millions of people have become Mental Health First Aiders around the world.
