    It is a great pleasure to be involved with the The Banksia Project, as the South Western Sydney Growth Room Facilitator.

    The Banksia Project is a men’s mental wellness initiative combining awareness building with constructive action.

    This is achieved through:

    • Empowering Community and peer support
    • Enhancing social connection and learning through the sharing of experiences and
    • Promotion and adoption of positive, evidence-based lifestyle and mental health practices

    The Growth Rooms are male only community support groups lead by trained facilitators discussing a range of topics from stress management, mental illness to wellness practices. All groups will have a Mental Health professional referral network and clinical supervision from partner institutions.

    The Growth Rooms is a pilot and is intended to run for 6 months where the group can meet regularly (once per month) for approx. 2 hours.

    Attendance is Free.

     If someone you know could be interested to participate in the pilot, please share this information.
