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

Work is Mental: Young people

Lilly's story

Lilly's story is an incredible way to learn about the day-to-day of what it's like trying to hold down a job while living with mental ill health; what makes it hard, what the stigma is like and some practical solutions that worked for her - an important watch for employers, families and those people trying to get and keep a job while living with mental ill health.

Work is Mental - FREE community mental health forums

See the flyer with all the details (on behalf of project partners CVGT)

Are you dealing with mental health issues and struggling to get a job or keep a job? Perhaps you're an employer who wants to better support your employees? Be part of a unique workshop series that aims to connect job seekers, employees and employers with the support they need to stop mental health difficulties getting in the way of a successful working life and thriving workplaces.

The program all begins with a 1hr yoga session starting on Tuesday the 30th October 5.45pm at St David’s Park.

Diabetes education sessions for doctors

We're thrilled to be supporting the John Morris Diabetes Centre Integrated Diabetes Care project, to deliver an educational program for GP's across rural and remote primary healthcare sites, giving them an opportunity to learn from the best in the business and supercharging their knowledge and skills in best practise diabetes care.

Immunisation workshops for GP's, nurses and other health professionals

We're continuing our work with the RFDS on its Right as Rain program to make sure doctors and nurses and other health professionals in rural and remote communities have the information and resources they need to have effective conversations with patients about the importance of immunisation. Importantly, these workshops equip health professionals with a specific skill set, including tips and resources for talking to ‘hesitant immunisers’.

Expressions of Interest

So, we hear you're keen to help Tasmanians improve their health, social and economic outcomes? Us too! This is a call for Expression of Interest to be listed on our register of Brilliant People. We work with a whole range of people from allied health professionals to nutritionists to storytellers to consultants. If you're someone who helps others live better lives, we probably want you in ours.  If you're a good fit, we may call on you to provide sessions for the various programs we manage. It's a triple threat opportunity: You get paid, you get to promote what you do, and you can pull in new clients (see, it's brilliant).

Business Events Tasmania

We all know Tasmania is an awesome place to live, work and play - we think people can get a taste of all those things whenever they visit. We thrilled to be doing some work with Business Events Tasmania to help share that message with the world! Watch this space to see what's next.

#mission2QUIT

City Mission have been on a #Mission2Quit…smoking. In 2018 we put together the pieces of a complex smoking cessation program that  supported City Mission employees to QUIT smoking. Bravo to the team for tackling this as it can be tough. This unique program brought together Nicotine Replacement Therapy, QUIT chats, counselling and behavioural support across the six weeks.

This Project was funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government.

Healthy Hobart Goes Dark

If you’ve ever used ‘it’s too cold and dark’ as a reason to not exercise… sorry. The research tells us that the dark and cold weather does stop people exercising so, along with the City of Hobart, we thought we’d have a crack as fixing that. Healthy Hobart Goes Dark will bounce off the exuberance of the Dark Mofo festival. 
There are 18 unique and innovative sessions all happening in Hobart’s parks and facilities including Puffer Jacket Yoga, Discosize and Medieval Games. The program all begins with a Quidditch session starting on Friday the 15th June 4.30pm at Parliament Lawns.

This Project was funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government.
