THRIVE program to assist sport and recreation clubs

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.

Successfully trialled in the education sector, THRIVE is designed to support young people to develop positive mental health and wellbeing, while using the principles of positive psychology.

Local clubs have an open invitation to find out how THRIVE can benefit them by attending a Zoom online briefing session on Wednesday, November 18, from 6pm to 6.45pm.

Mental health support is vital for sporting clubs, according to Josh Connell, THRIVE coordinator.

“Coming out of COVID-19, protecting the mental health and wellbeing of the community has never been so important,’’ he said.

“Selected clubs will have exclusive access to resources and receive a tailored approach to their club. Participation is free but places are limited.’’

Clubs have an open invitation to attend the briefing session. Register at https://www.trybooking.com/BMJYZ.
