Walking Home for the Salvos

Pathways is once again proud to be associated with "Walking Home".

Walking Home is a walk to raise the awareness of homelessness in our region. This year's event will be held on Saturday 8th November 2014. The walk begins in Queenscliff, proceeds along the Bellarine Rail Trail to conclude at Steampacket Gardens at the Geelong Waterfront. The total walk distance is 37km but walkers can choose to do a particular section of the walk if preferred. You can choose from four distances, depending on your fitness level and time availability. Whatever your distance, you will walk alongside dedicated representatives of the many organisations who deliver services to homeless people and many other like-minded community folk. - See more at:

Pathways hosts CLIP "taster day"

CLIP (Community Life Inclusion Project) is a project that aims to help young people increase their understanding of what the community services sector does & the range of career options available. On Thursday July 17 Pathways hosted the CLIP taster day event for Mental Health.

The students spent the day with Pathways, in a successful and informative introduction to working in Mental Health. They heard about upcoming opportunities in the field, about Pathways and it's programs and from several staff members on their career options. Students were captivated by James McLure's talk on recovery and lived experience, and broke out of their shells to ask many questions. They heard about youth work and what it's like working early intervention, and from Liz Darragh at headspace talking about youth services and her own diploma in Community Services and where it's taken her. The students worked diligently on activities that broke down mental health myths and received background information on the most common mental health issues to expel any distortions on causes, symptoms and treatment. They tried their hand at Mindfulness and completed the Basis 32 in an effort to look at the wide-ranging effects of Mental Health issues.

All in all it was a successful day that hopefully opened the minds of some youngsters to consider working in Mental Health!

CLIP is an initiative of St Laurence in partnership with Pathways, Karingal, Glastonbury and Barwon Health.CLIPLOGO 000
