Happy New Year!

January is a time for renewal, fresh starts and new year’s resolutions. Many of us plan to improve by eating better or doing more exercise. But wellness and wellbeing is about a whole range of interconnected factors, including:

  • Physical health and fitness
  • Mental health, resilience and self-esteem
  • Personal safety and security
  • Good relationships and social connection
  • Having a sense of purpose and achievement
  • Enjoying life and having fun

These factors include the basics – such as being healthy and avoiding illness – through to other things that influence our sense of wellbeing, like personal beliefs, goals and community connections.

There are lots of things you can do to maintain and improve your own wellbeing. Find some tips and resources at Better Health Channel or the Black Dog Institute.

If you need extra help, there are also many organisations offering support.

Bridge Housing conducts regular wellbeing checks to help ensure that our tenants get the services they need to sustain tenancies and meet their goals. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been undertaking additional wellbeing checks and providing practical assistance to those in need.

We also offer a range of ongoing support services, programs and information resources to help tenants with education, training and employment, managing finances and community connections.  

Beyond our own services, Bridge Housing partners with a range of other specialist providers who can help with issues around homelessness, safety, mental health, parenting, addiction, asylum and aged care.

To learn more about tenancy issues; the types of support and assistance available; how to get more involved in Bridge Housing forums; and community activities, check out the Tenants page here.

Here’s to improved wellbeing for everyone in 2022!
