Resilient Ararat was formed to help improve the resilience, happiness and mental well-being of people living in Ararat and surrounding rural townships.

The group is made up of principals from ten local schools, as well as representatives from local businesses, community groups and organisations.

Resilient Ararat’s first major initiative is bringing renowned mental health program, The Resilience Project, to Ararat in February 2020.

This event will introduce our community to the three main principles for living a happy life – gratitude, empathy and mindfulness. But, we don’t want it to stop there!

After The Resilience Project has left, Resilient Ararat will continue to build on these principles by hosting a range of community events and activities to boost our overall happiness. Keep an eye out here for upcoming dates or follow ‘Resilient Ararat’ on Instagram and Facebook.
