Cooinda Mental Health Programs

Would you like to develop some skills to help your mental health? Would you like to connect with like-minded people? Are there life-skills you would like to learn?

Come and join a range of group sessions designed and delivered by mental health clinicians and peer workers to increase knowledge and skills for overall health and wellbeing.

Cooinda Creative – Fortnightly:
Learn to express yourself through creative writing, drawing and crafts. Each session will have a different focus over the 6-weeks.

Sebas Creative Session – Fortnightly:
No need to register, come and participate in some creative fun. Previously we have done colouring in, painting, Christmas crafts etc.
However, what you do is up to you.

Creative Play Space:
Creative Play Space focuses on writing, art, and storytelling in a safe and supportive environment. If you enjoy painting and drawing, writing, and storytelling, and are looking to socialise with friendly like-minded individuals,
this group is perfect for you. Open to all people 55 years and above.

Take half an hour out of your day to calm your busy mind. Our relaxation classes are designed to help you relax your body and mind. You will be guided to calm your nervous system and supported to slow down.
These classes are offered in a safe and comfortable setting.

Tuning into Kids (TIK):
This is a closed 6-week program which aims to help your child develop emotional intelligence. The program teaches parents and carers skills in emotion coaching – a way of responding to emotions that can help children understand, regulate and work through their emotions so that they manage their behaviours and respond in socially appropriate ways.

Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
A closed 9-week program which aims to teach you skills to help manage your behaviour and emotion, take on day-to-day life and help you understand why you struggle with the things you do. Over the 9 weeks you will focus on skills
based on mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and effective communication.
