    'Dancing With Diagnosis' Concept Video Series

    This is a free online activity 

    Launching organisation, Thru the Rabbit Hole, brings you a social media based Mental Health Awareness Campaign in the form of a concept video series called 'Dancing With Diagnosis'

    There are 3 concepts to help you decide why to dance:

    Concept 1: You're a 'consumer' / 'carer' / community member who accepts diagnosis, feels no need/desire to question it & you're happy to dance with/to that. You want to humanize psychiatric diagnosis.

    Concept 2: You're a 'consumer' / 'carer' / community member questioning & 'dancing with the idea' of formal or self-diagnosis. You want to raise awareness that mental distress can happen to anyone, you feel diagnoses are unimportant & you want to humanize psychiatric diagnoses.

    Concept 3: You're a 'consumer' / 'carer' / community member / clinician who dances with diagnoses; you don't align with & are against pathologizing distress or you're starting to question & become frustrated by diagnostics. Your 'partner' is incompatible, you're not leading, you're dancing to someone else's tune, you're out of step, you can't feel the rhythm, or you dislike the whole show i.e. the mental health biomedical model

    “Instructions/Steps to take part: 1). Upload 30 second video of you dancing to any choice of music or none at all
    2) Use the tags /#dancingwithdiagnosis[insert diagosis] & #thrutherabbitholeaustralia
    3) You must tag the song title if using a song/music in your video
    4) [optional] Add a personal or social message

    As part of Thru the Rabbit Hole's Mental Health promotions and campaign, and with thanks to a wonderful partnership with the UpSelf Wellness -Self-Care Movement, it will give away 7 self-care "pamper package" prizes to to the most engaged with dancer/dance video posts. A winner will be announced on the Thru the Rabbit Hole Instagram account page throughout Mental Health Awareness Month. Don't forget to use the listed hashtags to be in the running for a lovely self-care treat!

    There are other conceptualizations and social justice oriented messages located within this campaign and people are encouraged to share their conceptualizations or even re-conceptualize their identity and personal/social labeling in the process, throughout mental health month & beyond...! Lets do this!

    Konga for Mental Health - Shelley

    This is a Jungle Body event 

    ??90’s KONGA for MENTAL HEALTH??

    2020 has really helped open our eyes to just how important it is to look after our Mental Health ?? ??
    With the COVID pandemic forcing us into lockdown, many people who have not usually suffered from mental health challenges found themselves really struggling to cope. Working and schooling from home added extra pressure to the household, not to mention the loss of jobs and reduced income for so many households. So many people are still finding it really tough to cope and for them it isn’t as easy as some to carry on with day to day activities ??

    One of the most important and effective ways to suppprt our mental health is to MOVE ????‍??Whether it be a nice long walk in the fresh air, a run or my personal favourite- a Jungle Body class ??‍????‍??

    You will FEEL GREAT after releasing endorphins and trigger all of those positive feels in the body. Call it your “happy drug” ??????

    In aid of WA Mental Health week (10-17 Oct) I am dedicating my class on Monday 12th October to support the WA Association of Mental Health ????

    Grab your pals and come along to shake, twist, jab and bounce to the
    ??HITS OF THE 90’s ??

    Britney Spears
    Venga Boys
    Spice Girls
    Hanson
    Janet Jackson
    The Offspring

    The list goes on.... ??

    Get your MIND and BODY feeling STRONGER with KONGA and show your support for WA Mental Health ??
