Where we live. How we live. What we've lived.

The nutrition we consume, movement of our bodies, the health of the planet and quality of our housing and neighbourhoods all play a part in building health communities and individuals. Our bodies keep physical score of what we experience – it's important to encourage a trauma-informed lens in trying to understand challenging behaviours, intrusive thoughts and reactions. Learning how to process, heal and grow from negative experiences shapes our resilience, access to new opportunities, coping skills, strong connections and relationships, and quality of life.

WAAMH awarded $50,000 of grants to 141 recipients (organisations, groups and individuals) for them to hold their own event, purchase equipment for their service, experience something nice for themselves of upskill with mental health training. WAAMH also distributed 17,000 awareness green ribbons and launched mental health awareness pens with 1800 distributed.
