Ruah’s Good Days Recreation Program is a free, activity-based community aimed at improving mental health through connection, engagement, movement, and fun.
Funded by the Mental Health Commission, the Good Days Recreation Program will follow an evidence-based approach that pairs individualised psycho-social support with inclusive community well-being activities.
The program is open to people aged 16-65 who is experiencing severe and persistent mental health challenges and/or alcohol and other drug (AOD) use. No medical diagnosis is required, and referrals can come from support coordinators, community service providers, family members or by self-referral.
Activities and groups are available across the Perth metropolitan area and Geraldton, they change regularly according to the group’s tastes and interests.
Opportunities include swimming, cooking, creative workshops, picnics and BBQs. All groups are expectation and obligation free. Carers, family members or friends are able to accompany the client to help support attendance.
Self-referrals or referrals from case workers, and community/health service providers should complete the Referral Form and a Good Days case worker will be in touch with details. You are welcome to contact us for more information or questions.
