"my life" a healthy living journal

A healthy life requires a balanced approach, helping people to experience a sense of fulfillment and wellbeing. Life is made up of various dimensions that together influence health. These include movement, work, emotions, nutrition, friends, family, spirituality and medical management.

 

The ‘My Life’ Healthy Living journal encourages people living with chronic conditions, mental health issues and disability to do more than just manage their condition.  It helps create a wellness vision for their life and communicate this with their support team.
 

The journal has five sections:

1. Look

  • My personal information
  • My health
  • My assessment

 

2. Think

  • My vision
  • My strengths
  • My circle of support

 

3. Act

  • My goals
  • My plan
  • My progress

 

4. The Model for Healthy Living Dimensions

 

5. My Current Health

Hope Pack & Care Share Pack

“21 days…doing life together”
We have developed a resource to help you encourage individuals to develop hopeful thinking and positive self-talk, and life enhancing habits to assist people in their recovery from mental health conditions.
 

Our Hope Pack and Share Care Pack help people living with mental health conditions to structure into each day simple and positive behaviour to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
 

Both packs have a similar structure. The Hope Pack is developed from a Christian perspective, while the Share Care Pack uses a non-faith based approach. They are designed as a wellness tool that fosters a natural and safe friendship between a person living with a mental health condition and a buddy, who motivates the person for 21 days and beyond.
 

The packs contain 21 days of…

  • 21 letters
  • 21 envelopes
  • Encouragers
  • Gifts
  • CD/DVD of instructions
  • PDF files to reproduce the pack for ongoing use

 

The packs can also be used in churches, community mental health services, community support groups and prisoner pre-release programs. They should be used with a friend/buddy who provides encouragement and support to the person.
 

If you’d like to learn more about the Hope Pack or Share Care Pack, please contact us (08) 8273 7100.
 

The Hope Pack and Share Care Pack can be purchased for $44 each (includes GST)
