Mildura Weekly : Friday October 14 Vol 10 No 49
NEWS 23 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2016 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU Mildura West finalist in ResourceSmart Awards • From previous page “The ResourceSmart Schools Awards cover pre-school age children through to high school. It means that from a young age, students can take away lessons learnt about sustainable action and apply them at home and throughout their lives.” Swan Hill Secondary College has also been named a finalist as part of the awards in the Student-led Action Team of the Year Secondary category. Swan Hill Secondary College’s ‘The Green Team’ was established in May 2016, with key roles and responsibilities includ- ing attending meetings to discuss ideas, planning fund-raising activities, meeting with school staff to organise tree plantings, communicating with Bunnings for tree do- nations, presenting updates at assemblies, planning small group projects like remov- ing bottled water from the canteen, increas- ing biodiversity and getting a chook yard. More information about the awards is available online at www.resourcesmart- schools.vic.gov.au. FAR West NSW residents, including those in the Wentworth Shire, are being encour- aged to think about how they “service their minds” following the launch of this year’s ‘Glove Box Guide to Mental Health.’ An initiative of Mental Health Month, the Glove Box Guide to Men- tal Health – a partnership between the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health’s (CRRMH) Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP) and The Land – was officially launched this week. RAMHP co-ordinator for Far West Local Health District, Marie Kelly, said the guide is a valuable resource, and would play an important role in rais- ing awareness about mental health, while improving the well-being of people in rural and remote New South Wales. “The guide helps to re- duce stigma and break down barriers,” she said. “By people sharing their personal stories of a lived experience, there is a greater awareness about men- tal illness and the fact that people can still live healthy, meaningful lives. “It also makes people aware of what to look out for, how to support someone who is struggling and how and where to seek help.” The theme for this year’s guide is how to service your mind, with personal stories shared helping to touch on what it feels like to struggle with a mental illness, and why seeking help is so important. It will also focus on what people have in their toolkit to help them cope or get through tough times, and what has helped with their recovery. The guide also provides practical infor- mation and education, including online therapies and information on mental well-being tools and apps, as well as tips and strategies on how to stay mentally healthy. Readers can also find information about commu- nity services and programs such as farmer groups, youth programs focusing on de-stigmatising mental health and peer support programs. This year, a total of 44,000 copies of the guide are expected to reach al- most 115,000 readers across NSW and beyond, with an extra 25,000 copies to be distributed by CRRMH and RAMHP workers in the field. Those interested can receive the 2016 Glove Box Guide to Mental Health by purchasing a copy of The Land. Ms Kelly will also be dis- tributing copies throughout the Far West Local Health District in coming months. Residents concerned about their own or someone else’s mental well-being are en- couraged to contact the mental health line on 1800 011 511, or contact Lifeline on 131 114.
