Sunflower Seeds Activities and Programs

Berrima Cottage Bowral Outings Apr2016While developing friendships and having fun with sporting and social activities has always been important we also have a special focus on improving the health of the whole person. This is through healthy living courses, education on relevant health and lifestyle topics and with weekly brain training and bush walking sessions a popular choice. Mondays feature a free cooking course with a group prepared and shared meal.

A recent project undertaken in conjunction with rehabilitation staff and with the support of Wingecarribee Men's Health Association (WHAM) has been the 'Mentoring for Wellness' program for younger men (16 years and over) to learn practical skills by working with older mentors.

We are currently carrying out various small construction and renovations projects with local community organisations.

Staff from Sunflower Seeds also support a local consumer social group called 'Brighter Horizons' and facilitate a 'Hearing Voices' support group in Bowral in conjunction with The Hearing Voices Network.
