Campaspe Service Directory
Health & Community Services in Campaspe.
Keeping Mentally Well
This resource provides key advice/steps and service listings for people trying to improve their own sense of wellbeing, looking for help with something that is bothering them, or helping someone they care about.
Campaspe PCP along with the Campaspe Murray Mental Health Network have developed this comprehensive resource for residents living in the Campaspe Murray area. Along with listing a number of local services that can assist with our mental health and wellbeing, there are also lots of contacts on here that are relevant, no matter where we live.
Priorities for the four year plan include:
- Health equity - strengthening service provider knowledge, skills and resources related to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups
- Access - better access for people to navigate and be supported to the appropriate services with a focus on vulnerable and disadvantaged populations
- Service Integration - facilitate how various parts of the system integrate with each other in the context of current and future health and social reforms
Prevention & Health Promotion
Prevention and Health Promotion funded organisations, and Campaspe Shire work with local partners to align activities for collective impact across Campaspe. Priorities for the four year plan include:
- Healthy eating active living
- Prevention of family violence through gender equity
- Reducing harm from alcohol and other drugs
- Mental health
The Volunteering project aims to build capacity of local community and health organisations by developing a shared approach to organisational structures, supports, training, recruitment and retention of volunteers.
It also plans to minimise duplication through collaboration and sharing of best practice approaches to ensure consistency of service across the Murray Campaspe area. It will also identify strategies to enhance promotion and recognition of volunteers within the local area.
Supported by our local Aboriginal Health Partnership Group. This group’s key focus is to improve the health status of local aboriginal people in Campaspe, particularly related to smoking cessation, spiritual and mental wellbeing, education and employment, early years and promoting culture.
Campaspe PCP promote and apply social inclusion principles throughout partnership activity and actively use the Rural Social Inclusion framework to build capacity of services to implement socially inclusive practices. We also implemented a Socially Inclusive Communities project in 2015-2015 designed to challenge the culture and stereotypes perpetuating socially exclusive practices in the communities of Murray and Campaspe. The goal of the project was “To build resilience, acceptance and cohesiveness within the communities of Murray and Campaspe to promote inclusion and participation for all”.
