WHEATBELT COMMUNITY WELLBEING PLANS

Community Wellbeing Plan are held at a community stakeholder/organisational level and are supported by Holyoake’s Prevention Team. The Prevention Team provide information, resources and advice surrounding evidence based best practice in injury prevention and harm minimisation to value add to locally owned initiatives to reduce the risk of harm to individuals, families and the whole of community.

The development of these plans includes a thorough local consultation process, which sees 3 to 4 key priority areas identified, which can align specifically with alcohol and other drug prevention, suicide prevention, mental health and wellbeing or a combination of all three.  A Community Perception Survey is also undertaken, which can be used not only to gain an understanding of the communities’ perception of issues/concerns, but can be used as an evaluation/measurement tool for the locally developed Plan.

Embedded in the Plans are the Mental Health Commission’s state-based campaigns such as Alcohol Think Again, Drug Aware, and the Think! Mental Health campaign.  This enables local communities to value add to state campaigns and localise a campaign to specifically reach their community or gain greater exposure of the campaign at local events and initiatives.
