Program to address mental wellbeing

By Colin MacGillivray
A free information session for a ‘transformative’ mental wellbeing program is open to people in the Horsham district tomorrow.
The session will give interested people an overview of the Boost Emotional Wellness Program, a three-session program delivered by Delhuntie Wellness Services.
Presenter Brendan Scale has a background in counselling and youth drug and alcohol work, and said the program would benefit a range of people.
“It’s a very broad spectrum of people who can benefit from this program,” he said.
“It can be anyone who just wants to get more out of life and improve how they feel about life, through to those who suffer from serious depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.
“The session is also open to professionals, because there is a lot of research coming out now which professionals might not have heard about, or might have heard about but have not realised the significance of it.”
Mr Scale said the program’s three sessions, which will be at Horsham’s Centre for Participation on Urquhart Street, will each cover a different key area of mental and emotional wellbeing.
“The first session is around lifestyle,” he said.
“There has been a big growth around what’s called ‘lifestyle medicine’ now, and it shows the significant impact a person’s lifestyle can have on not only their physical health, but their mental health as well.
“The second session is on the importance of connection.
“A lot of research shows how disconnected we are becoming in western society and how absolutely crucial connection is – to nature and people and spirituality – for everyday wellness.
“The third session is around mindset. Through the storms of life, it’s easy to lose a sense of navigation in terms of where you’re going and what you’re doing.
“It looks at the importance of mindset and knowing where true north is so that when the winds blow you don’t get knocked too far off course.”
Mr Scale said it was one of the most important programs he had ever presented.
“In my professional and personal experience, these principles put together as a package deal are life changing,” he said.
“There are many principles in our field that help people, but these principles put together are probably one thing I’ve seen that changes people’s lives the most.
“I’ve done a lot of work with youth alcohol and other drugs, and I’ve seen these principles truly transform people’s lives.
“Not only have they helped transform the lives of people I’ve worked with, they’ve helped transform my life as well.”
Tomorrow’s information session is at Horsham’s Centre for Participation from 1.30pm-2.30pm.
People can call Mr Scale on 0448 816 695 or email boosthorsham@gmail.com for more information.
