Good Design Australia Award for SAHMRI’s Resilient Futures Project

This week saw a well-deserved Good Design Australia award for the inspiring Resilient Futures SA team at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

Wyatt has been a proud and privileged supporter of the Resilient Futures project, along with our friends at The James and Diana Ramsay Foundation, since the project’s inception in 2015.

This three-year action-research project is measuring, building and embedding wellbeing and resilience amongst a cohort of 850 disadvantaged young people across Adelaide, using a systematic approach based on Dr Martin Seligman’s PERMA (Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment) dashboard.

The aim of the project is to achieve improved mental health outcomes, more active participation in the community, increased self-confidence and increased resilience to stressful life events for vulnerable young people.

As the Good Design Australia team noted at the awards in Sydney: “This is a brilliant project that has benefits on both sides. It provides students with a life changing experience to learn … while offering help where it is needed most. This is a truly innovative and inspiring project.”

Huge congrats from all of us at Wyatt to the Resilient Futures project team.
