Description

The Family CALM program is a mental health prevention, intervention and recovery support program designed for the whole family. Here at Adventure Connections we understand that an individual’s mental and physical health is largely determined by a wide range of social, cultural, economic and environmental factors however the effects of mental illness and suicide are far reaching. In any year, approximately one in five Australians experiences mental ill-health and in 2018, 3046 people lost their lives to suicide and families are left to pick up the pieces. CALM is designed to assist families to develop the skills, knowledge and strategies to be able to respond in an effective, timely and appropriate manner when a loved one is experiencing mental ill health.

The CALM program utilises Bush Adventure Therapy, Experiential Education and Health and Wellness workshops to facilitate positive behaviour changes, develop self-management, interpersonal, social and emotional skills, as well as skills and strategies for improving their mental and physical health, empowering families to adopt and maintain healthy, more active lifestyles and behaviours together.
