Supporting Community Connection
How can you help people in your community living with mental health challenges?
MHCC has released a huge variety of learning materials to help people support clients, colleagues, neighbours, family and friends living with mental health conditions. Supporting Community Connection is all about inclusion, recovery and empowerment. Find videos, information and resources; all learning materials are free and can be adapted to suit your needs.
Download our co-designed resources below to assist community members, workers, family and friends, strengthen community capacity & increase social inclusion for people living with mental health challenges. A Good Practice Guide and Project Report are also available to explain how MHCC developed the learning materials and how best to use them.
The ‘Supporting Community Connection’ learning material arising from co-design consists of six key topics.
1. What is Recovery?
2. Community Inclusion
3. Supports and Services
4. Embracing Change
5. Creating Healing Environments
MHCC describe the learning material and a range of opportunities for Community Workers and others to use them in this Good Practice Guide.
Draft learning materials were trialed in one metropolitan (Central South Eastern Sydney) and one rural (Western NSW) location. The University of Sydney evaluated the trials. The learning materials were finalised against this and other co-design feedback.
