Interactive discussion forum: Building Flourishing Communities

Otago Mental Health Support Trust and the Mental Health Foundation are inviting  organisations to a free interactive discussion forum: Building Flourishing Communities Using the Five Ways To Wellbeing to improve health outcomes for all on 28 February at Community Link.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing is a set of evidence-based actions that individuals can take to improve their mental health and wellbeing. They have also been used to develop policies and strategies to promote optimum wellbeing or ‘flourishing’ at a population level.

This forum aims to bring together organisations that are actively using the Five Ways with those who may have a strong interest in doing so or in finding out more. Speakers will include representatives from Dunedin City Council, Mental Health Foundation, He Oranga Pounamu and Otago Mental Health Support Trust.

All organisations with an interest in community development, neighbourhood renewal or population health and wellbeing are encouraged to join us for a lively and active session.
