Living with a mental illness is challenging but it should not prevent an individual from living a full and meaningful life. Flourish is a peer facilitated, recovery based, self-development program that focuses on personal growth and responsibility. Developed by the University of Wollongong, Illawarra Institute for Mental Health, the program helps participants identify goals and develop the strategies needed to achieve them.
Flourish is not an illness management program but is designed to help individuals take responsibility for making positive changes in their life by:
recognising their own strengths
identifying the things that really matter to them – their values and goals
planning for change – developing and using the tools needed to achieve goals.
Flourish is centred around six peer facilitated sessions which take place over a 12 week period with telephone coaching on alternate weeks.
