Our community partners
GMHBA partners with a number of organisations to support the health and wellbeing of our community, with a particular focus on physical activity, mental health, nutrition and engagement.
We partner with trusted and respected local community organisations who work tirelessly to support local communities.
GMHBA is excited to be partnering with Active Geelong to improve the physical activity levels of our local community. Active Geelong's vision is to get Geelong moving with the ‘movement movement’ to make Geelong Australia's most active city.
GMHBA is providing the community leadership for Active Geelong. In collective impact terms, GMHBA is the backbone organisation providing support for the successful delivery of Active Geelong.
Physical activity can help prevent cardio vascular disease, type 2 diabetes, depression and anxiety, hypertension, obesity and certain cancers including colon and breast.
Active Geelong is a collaborative project that brings together leading businesses, doctors, researchers and individuals to address inactivity in the Geelong region.
The Healthy Heroes program is a joint initiative of GMHBA and Geelong Cats that aims to empower young people to make good choices about their health and wellbeing. It is a one-hour program designed specifically for Grade 3 and 4 students focusing on nutrition, water, exercise and screen time.
