The River 2 Recovery - Murray River Journey

22 Nov - 02 Dec 2013

St Luke’s Mental Health Recovery Services, in partnership with Wodonga TAFE are supporting the River 2 Recovery project – a unique and inspiring venture that commenced in February 2012.

The River 2 Recovery project is a team of 17 people living with mental health challenges who are engaged in a 2 year educational program where they have been building 5 row boats. The River 2 Recovery members are also completing a Certificate 1 in Transition Education.

Fundraising activities are undertaken by the River 2 Recovery team to support their journey down the Murray River which will take place with an official launch event being held at Noreuil Park on Friday 22nd November this year and concludes 11 days later (Monday 2nd December 2013) at Lake Mulwala. This River 2 Recovery Launch Event will be open to the entire community and will be an educational experience as well as a celebration worth attending.

The goal of the River 2 Recovery team is to highlight mental health issues within our local communities and challenge the stigma still attached to people living with a mental illness. The hope is that the River 2 Recovery team members will complete their project having experienced an extraordinary journey that will add value and lasting significance to their lives. Whilst also reconnecting people to their community and highlighting that mental health matters to us all.

One of the greatest outcomes already evident amongst the River 2 Recovery participants is their dedication to their cause and their great strength in working as a team, especially when you consider the social isolation that each individual can relate to.

The River 2 Recovery team are planning a number of events in the lead up to their 11 day river journey in November. One of these upcoming activities that will be taking place within the community is the decorating of the boats. It is hoped that this event will bring people together in support of the River 2 Recovery team by community members participating in the decorating of the boats which will then go on display during Mental Health Month activities in October.
