Live Different, Think Different, Be Different! The Mind-Life Project seeks to solve one of society’s most sticky problems: Creating community connection and a sense of full citizenship for the most vulnerable.
The Mind Life initiative is a National Disability Insurance Scheme: Information Linkages and Capacity Building Grant funded project to reframe psychosocial disability, reduce stigma and improve community access for people who experience psychosocial disability.
We pose the question: What is psychosocial disability? How does the term help us create an inclusive sociality? In fact, does it? Or does it further separate society? What is possible to create a more cohesive and connected society?
Mind Life is a transformative project focusing on mental health promotion and the reduction of stigma using Human Centred Design and both a community development and campaign style approach. Through the project we are looking at discovering new ways of being and community connection.
Mind Life project will work with design teams across the State to test try and explore what it means to live well and what could we do differently that makes sure everyone can be included.
Design Teams will be created in 10 major cities and 6 rural and remote areas across Queensland founding the basis of a roadshow to promote the messages and resources of Mind-Life.
The Mind-Life initiative is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services through an Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Grant to reframe psychosocial disability, reduce stigma and improve community access for people who experience psychosocial disability in collaboration with Bridges Health and Community Care.
