Delivering the WoW factor to Bundaberg

2 Apr 2015

The Queensland Mental Health Commission is helping to deliver wellness training to people in Bundaberg and the South Burnett region.

Bundaberg Skills Centre Inc, trading as IMPACT Community Services, has received almost $15,000 as part of the QMHC’s investment in mental health programs across the state.

Queensland Mental Health Commissioner Dr Lesley van Schoubroeck visited Bundaberg today to meet with IMPACT staff who will be both participating in and delivering the “Wheel of Wellbeing” or “WoW” training.

The “Wheel of Wellbeing” was developed in the United Kingdom as part of a program for building individual and community mental wellbeing. It encourages awareness of all the aspects of our lives that sustain our wellbeing, and provides simple tools and techniques to help keep things in balance and in perspective.

IMPACT Chief Executive Tanya O’Shea said the WoW program had been well received in Bundaberg because it takes a positive approach to enhancing wellness.
