THRIVE program to support sports clubs
Friday, 25 September 2020
Sporting and recreation clubs across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula will be better able to support the mental health and wellbeing of their members through the delivery of the THRIVE program.
THRIVE is a holistic, evidence-based model using the principles of Positive Psychology. Successfully trialled in the education sector, THRIVE is designed to support young people to develop positive mental health and wellbeing, while supporting their academic achievement. It will now be piloted in sport and recreation.
Funded by South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN), THRIVE is being piloted by the St Kilda Football Club in partnership with the THRIVE Collective. Members of the Collective include: Langwarrin Positive Education and Community Network, Peninsula Health, Frankston City Council and the Primary Care Partnership.
The THRIVE pilot will facilitate capacity building and resource development to enable sport and recreation centres in the Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula to create health promoting environments, disseminate wellbeing resources and implement training in suicide prevention and mental wellbeing.
