Current Edition Of Health Matters Magazine:

The July 2020 edition of Health Matters, with a theme of Self-Advocacy and Peer Support, comes at a time when we have seen many changes in WA and around the world. Many people have begun taking a more active role in their health and wellbeing in recent months, and we hope the resources in this edition will help to empower you to make informed decisions around your own health. We’ve also put an emphasis on mental health in this edition, including proactive ways to look after your mental wellbeing. The pandemic has been challenging on many levels and has abruptly changed what day-to-day life looks like for most of us. More than ever it’s important to stay connected with friends, family and community, and take steps to prioritise safely doing things that bring us joy, and nourish our bodies and souls, to help cope with all the changes.
