We all know paddling is a great sport and recreation for mental health and wellbeing. There is something about being out on the water that replenishes and revives the mind, body and soul.
As the State Sporting Association for Paddling in Western Australia, we are super excited to announce our partnership with the Act Belong Commit – Mentally Healthy Partner program.
We are now a part of WA’s longest running mental health promotion campaign, encouraging people to prioritise mental wellbeing and providing opportunities for people to take action to be mentally healthy.
Mental health and motivation were among the top benefits listed in our Paddle Poll .
Our community is our priority, and our partnership with Act Belong Commit will support and enhance our ongoing commitment to programs and events to attract, encourage and promote paddling as a mentally healthy pastime to the Western Australian community.
