Sport & Recreation
THRIVE is all about helping us to be at our best. Research has found that there are six simple actions we can all do daily to help us feel good, do good and live good.
The science of positive psychology is being used to provide community sport and recreation clubs with a structured approach to improve wellbeing, participation and enhance club culture.
The expansion of THRIVE into community sport and recreation clubs is with the support from the South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network as part of the Place-Based Suicide Prevention Trials. This work is in partnership with St Kilda Football Club, Frankston City Council, Peninsula Health and the Primary Care Partnership.
