An innovative early intervention and prevention Mental Health Program.
The Pay it Forward Plan (PIF), in partnership with the Mental Health Commission, is a ConnectGroups' small grants program available to members. It is an early intervention and prevention mental health program. The objective of PIF is to empower and encourage Self Help and Support Groups (SHSG) to achieve positive mental health outcomes while promoting the Group's sustainability. ConnectGroups can assist and mentor applicants through the grant submission process. All projects must demonstrate clear and measurable mental health outcomes consistent with the Mental Health Commission's "Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Services Plan 2015-2025" (the Plan) and incorporate the principles of:
- Promotion of mental health, prevention of mental health problems and/or illness;
- A recovery approach;
- Increased awareness, learning and sustainability of mental health;
- Relationship building and community belonging.
The next funding round of ConnectGroups’ small grants program “Pay it Forward” (PIF) is now open!
