Welcome to the October health & wellbeing update for 2022!

We would like to begin by acknowledging the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet at Central Bayside, the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation, and pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people past, present and emerging, especially acknowledging the wisdom of Elders.

Each month, we aim to share resources, programs, grants, professional learning opportunities and events to help maximise wellbeing in your service.

The Health Promotion Team at Central Bayside Community Health Services (CBCHS) are always available to provide tailored support to help your services build a whole of service approach to health and wellbeing for children, staff and families, using initiatives like the Achievement Program and more! If you would like free support to build a positive and healthy environment within your service, please get in touch with our team to get started!

Take care,
Kayla - Health Promotion Team at CBCHS

World Mental Health Day | 10 October
National Nutrition Week | 16 - 22 October
October is Mental Health Month!

Good mental health is when we can cope with the stressors of our daily lives, participate in loving relationships, contribute to our community, and work towards our goals. Everyone has mental health. And we can all benefit from looking after our own mental health and the mental health of our communities.
Visit Mental Health Australia's website for tips on how to look after yourself (and others), or check out the Mental Health Month calendar for some daily activities.
Held during National Nutrition Week, Try for 5 is a unique annual campaign to encourage Australians to get more veg in their day.

We know veggies are packed full of nutrients, and that eating more veg supports our health and protects us from certain diseases. Yet, most Aussies (including children) don't eat enough! 

Eating the recommended 5 serves of veg a day doesn't have to be complicated. Check out the Try for 5 website for inspo on how to get more veg into your day, including how to encourage kids to enjoy veggies, recipes, virtual events, cooking demos, and more!
The Health Promotion Team at CBCHS is funded by the Department of Health, allowing us to offer free, tailored health and wellbeing support to your early childhood service.

If you'd like to find out more about how we can support your service,
get in touch with Kayla on or 8587 0205.
