The overarching goal for this project is to create an access point for all community members to find the means to support their overall wellness. The Community Wellbeing Connection Hub will connect people to each other and to more formalized supports through a website and social media venues. The project also includes a series of webinars and podcasts focusing on a range of topics related to wellbeing through collaboration with community members, local professionals, small businesses, and other community organizations. The Hub will raise awareness about mental health and inspire community members to reach out to their friends, neighbours, and colleagues.
The Mental Health Resource HUB was set up based on the eight domains and each resource is slotted under the most appropriate domain. We completed 23 Webcasts and 18 Podcast specifically focused on each of the eight domains of wellness, we researched each domain and paired each to local resources then highlighted them either on a webcast, podcast, both and/or on the Mental Health Resource HUB.
