The consortium has been meeting regularly to plan how best to engage our community.
The program is engaging all segments of our community, including farming, youth representatives, Aboriginal and LGBTQI+ groups and individuals, as well as education, business and community sectors.
Early planning has identified that working with Wangaratta residents with lived experience of mental health and suicide will be vital to the success of the program.
Have your say
A survey is currently being conducted to seek ideas and input for the program.
The survey asks a series of questions about what grit and community resilience mean to Rural City of Wangaratta residents and asks for practical ways to build and strengthen these elements within our community.
Community feedback will help define our vision and the intended outcomes of the program.
The survey should take less than five minutes to complete and is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/GritandResilience.
Hard copies can also be provided by phoning 03 5722 0888. The survey closes on 5 June 2020.
