There is often a distinction made between mind and body, but developments and studies in recent years have proven the connection between mental and physical health. Over 40 years of leadership and expertise in mental health recovery puts Richmond Wellbeing at the forefront of recovery advancements and innovations. Backed by research and on-the-ground experience, we promote a total wellbeing approach to recovery which incorporates all aspects of wellness and healthy living.

Exercise Physiology

Exercise is a key pillar in achieving and maintaining positive mental health, as well as physical health. Exercise physiology provides a range of treatment services for the improvement and maintenance of health, fitness and rehabilitation.

Exercise Physiology can help treat and manage a broad range of conditions, from obesity, diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, cerebral palsy, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and more.

Health Education

Health is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. In striving towards overall wellbeing, people should be able to identify and to realize their aspirations, to satisfy needs, and to change or cope with their environment. As such, learning about health and the different aspects of healthy living enables people to increase control over and to improve their personal health.

Our Health Promotion Officer works with Richmond Wellbeing staff and clients to develop health-positive programs and strengthen skills and capabilities to take ownership of their health and lifestyle choices.
Available for free to Richmond Wellbeing clients, recent activities have included:

  • Working towards smoke-free sites. With our commitment to providing a healthy environment, we offer support for staff and clients who want to quit smoking
  • ‘Food Sensations’, a 4-week hands-on nutrition and cooking experience
  • An interactive workshop on ‘Walk Away from Diabetes’, a program for Type 2 Diabetes
