Healthy Tasmania | Driving collaboration to inspire community solutions 

 

At Healthy Tasmania, we work with our partners on a wide range of projects to improve the individual, social and economic health of our communities.  

 

We like to call ourselves community organisers. We connect people and groups with similar goals to more efficiently and effectively solve a problem; we are the glue!

In doing this, we are changing the way people work in the health and community sector, to make sure the right problems are solved by the right people at the right time.

 

Our motivation is to make communities thrive.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO

Health Speak

We're podcasting!

We’re podcasting! We’re working with City Park Radio to create a podcast series about… well… ‘health people’. Yeah, that’s right, all the people who are meant to help you look after your health. Who are they? How can they help? What do they really do? And why do they care? These short, funny and easy to understand stories will demystify ‘health speak’ and introduce you to some of the people who really want to help you to look after yourself and your health… turns out most of them are pretty cool. More information to be released soon. This project has been funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government

Healthy Shed

In 2019 it's Rocherlea's turn

We’ve moved to a brand new shed, literally. We’re working with the Rocherlea community to design and deliver 14 week healthy lifestyle program to support the group to reduce unhealthy habits like inactivity, smoking and poor food choices, plus there will be a focus on their connection to mental health. A program flyer will be available soon. This project has been funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government.

Healthy Quit

A unique and innovative 'quit smoking' program for your staff or community group

Healthy Quit supports you, to support your people QUIT smoking. The program pulls together the evidence to create a flexible, hands-on, creative and interactive program that can be adapted to meet the needs of your group or organisation. Healthy QUIT has been developed from a pilot program that boasts a 64% short-term quit rate, providing an exciting and life-changing opportunity for organisation and its people.

Healthy Performance

Coaches, Parents or Young Athletes - tune in!

Do you or someone close to you lack the capacity to undertake specific strength and conditioning training to enhance their game? We are pleased to be offering ‘Healthy Performance’, a strength and conditioning program designed specifically for players who wish to take their performance from ‘good’ to ‘elite’ or need support to make gym-based training work for them.

Storytelling for change | Speaking, mentoring, training

Steve Jobs once said "The most powerful person in the world is The Storyteller" yet most people and organisations have work to do if they are to step into this power. Don't worry, we’ve got you covered! We've designed a suite of workshops, keynotes and mentoring programs to help you or your organisation understand, then harness the science of storytelling.  You'll learn to build community buy-in, influence decision makers and create real and lasting change in your community and organisation. We'll teach you how to find your authentic voice, understand your audience and confidently present what you know in a way that makes other people take notice and take action.

A guide for healthier catering

When planning your next lot of catering at functions and events, why not make it healthy and lead by example? We've done the hard work for you and have put together a simple healthy catering guide to help you select your menu whther you're doing it inhouse or ordering in. Easy!

Healthy George Town

We are spending LOTS of time in George Town right now and we couldn’t be happier. We’re working with the George Town Council and a range of partners to pull together a community-wide health and wellbeing initiative called Healthy George Town. Healthy George Town is about supporting locals to form the sorts of healthy habits that they’ll be likely to keep and will improve their overall health and wellbeing for life. This initiative gives the community access to free programs, resources and networks to best support them to be as happy and healthy as they can be. More info coming soon.

Workplace Activation | We'll do the hard work for you

Does your health and wellbeing policy need a once over? The research is clear that creating a healthy workplace is good for business, however the process of creating and putting a plan into action can often be unclear and time consuming... but not for us! We’ve been working with organisations to develop the sorts of holistic policies that mean something to employees.  Healthy Tasmania Pty Ltd has extensive experience developing, implementing and evaluating holistic health and wellbeing strategies for Tasmanians in their work environment and we'd LOVE to chat with you and your team about the possibilities and outcomes for your workplace.

A tribe of community storytellers

We’ve been busily creating a tribe community storytellers to help solve some of Tassie’s toughest problems. WE LOVE this project – it truly recognises how people get their information, who they trust and taps into the science of storytelling to spread information into our communities in a way that is heard, remembered and relevant. It’s been awesome working with people who are so passionate and now equipped to use their stories to make a big impact for the kids growing up in their communities. It’s been such a pleasure working with the B4 Early Years Coalition on this one, who are pushing forward and happily taking innovate steps to make change happen more quickly

Professional development for health professionals

We’re going back to Ulverstone – we love it there. We’ve partnered with the Dr Simon Monks Memorial Foundation to bring the Director of the Launceston Diabetes Clinic, Associate Professor Gary Kilov, and his MASSIVE brain to the North-West Coast. Did you know that Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia; increasing at a faster rate than other chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer? That’s why we have Professor Kilov talking with 60 primary health care workers about the recent changes to international diabetes guidelines, medications and technology.
