share the warmth this winter for mental health
Written by Amelia
The environmental occurrences of the previous few years have left many of us feeling clouded and unsettled, therefore influencing our physical and mental selves. This combined with cooler than usual seasonal changes which naturally impact our mood and motivations, are causing many to feel particularly sombre, low and indifferent.
At Peninsula Hot Springs, mental health is a cause close to our hearts, which is why we partner with Mentis Assist and Mental Health Australia – two organisations that provide specialised mental health support for people living with a mental illness.
For centuries, bath houses have played an integral role in promoting togetherness and connectivity. We believe that the simple act of bathing in hot springs, surrounded by nature and in the company of a friend or loved one, can help ease the load of mental stress.
This is why we created our 'Share the Warmth' campaign.
'Share the Warmth' is an annual campaign designed to raise awareness for mental health challenges and eradicate the stigma surrounding mental illness. The campaign encourages guests to 'Share the Warmth' by bringing a friend who may be experiencing mental hardship (free of charge) to the Bath House to relax and bathe with them all whilst surrounded by the calm of our native natural environment.
