There is no doubt that 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on our mental health and general wellbeing. Often at the forefront of supporting our communities during these stressful times were Allied Health professionals across the region.

As we navigate through 2021 the PHN is offering Allied Health practices the opportunity to receive a one-off small grant of $200 (GST not applicable to this payment) to support activities or events that promote wellness, social connectedness and resilience amongst the allied health professional workforce. The funds can be used for a variety of initiatives, including:

  • Morning/afternoon tea to promote social connectedness in recognition of the hard work undertaken over the last 12 months
  • Team activity such as yoga, tai chi, etc
  • A team movie night
  • Contribution to team dinner
  • Hire of guest speaker to discuss wellness/resilience.

The PHN will be providing a complimentary information resource that contains mental health, resilience, and wellness information to support events or initiatives.
