About the program
Our community was a driving force behind $1.2 million of funding being received from the Federal Government to help deliver the program.
Agencies involved include the Rural City of Wangaratta, Murray Primary Health Network, Northeast Health, Gateway Health, Victoria Police, Department of Health and Human Services, Headspace Albury-Wodonga and the Albury-Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service.
They make up a consortium which has been planning how best to involve and engage our community.
It will be the decisions and input of our community which drive and inform the activities of the program and the resulting positive impacts to our community.
It is anticipated that through empowering our community to build grit, resilience and connection, we are better placed to bounce back from adversity together.
It is expected the program will result in broad benefits to the health and wellbeing of our community, with suicide prevention being just one of the program’s long term aims.
