The Maroondah Lift Project

As we learnt, experienced, thought and shared (LETS) together, we have discovered simple and easy strategies to help improve our mental wellbeing.

The Maroondah Lift Project has been a great wellbeing adventure lifting our spirits during these cold winter months. We learnt about scientifically-proven wellbeing strategies from the exciting fields of Neuroscience, Positive Psychology and Lifestyle Medicine. With a focus on mental wellbeing, this project showed us how to increase our resilience and happiness no matter where we’re at!
