Open Your World – a new website to promote wellbeing
This week a ground-breaking new wellbeing strategy was launched by Wellbeing SA — Open Your World.
The whole-of-government strategy provides a single source of information with a website promoting wellbeing, including:
- activities for kids and the whole family
- tips on staying fit and healthy
- ways to create connections
- online resources for learning and skill development.
The Department of Human Services, along with other government agencies, contributed to the new platform, to bring together government and non-government organisations to provide helpful resources and support for the community.
South Australians continue to respond to the global coronavirus pandemic as well as dealing with the aftermath of a devastating bushfire season and ongoing drought conditions across much of the state.
These events are having a significant impact on people's mental health and wellbeing. The latest Population Health Survey showed that one in four South Australians reported poor overall wellbeing. The development of Open Your World will help respond to these challenges.
Head to the new website to access a range of resources and supports, varying from cooking courses and language classes to nature, arts and culture activities.Page last updated : 07 May 2020
