Belgravia Leisure venues from around the country came together in a vibrant display of solidarity on R U OK? Day. In a sea of uplifting yellow, our dedicated teams, members and guests stood united in the pursuit of better mental health.
Our teams passionately championed this worthy cause both online and within our venues. They hosted morning teas, and proudly posed with R U OK? Day signs and in our venues led workouts underscoring the vital connection between physical and mental wellbeing.
At the Michael Clarke Recreation Centre, a heartwarming morning tea brought members together, serving as a reminder that a simple conversation has the power to save lives.
Meanwhile, over at the Wollondilly Community Leisure Centre, our team made sure to check in on each other, offering a reminder to “Have a break, have a KitKat.”
The Knox Leisureworks team and members spread awareness in venue and online by proudly reminding each other to ask R U OK?
At Dayboro Pool and Gym, the team encouraged members and guests to enjoy a beverage and a cookie (almost too beautiful to eat) while sparking meaningful conversations.
However, it wasn’t just about a day of support but about nurturing a culture of care and unity that extended far beyond R U OK? Day. Our teams had created something beautiful – a day of genuine connections.
A simple question can make a world of difference. R U OK? I’m here to listen because we are committed to starting a conversation that could save a life at Belgravia Leisure.

At Belgravia Leisure, we understand physical activity’s pivotal role in preventing the onset of mental health illness and its treatment. That’s why we developed the Mental Health eLearning Program, MHeLP.
MHeLP was developed under the guidance of international mental health and exercise experts. Designed for the New Zealand and Australian leisure and community support sectors to equip our employees and volunteers with strategies to support themselves and others’ mental health.
It is completely free, self-paced and earns learners two continuing education credits (CECs). We encourage your participation and ask you to promote participation with others.
Mental health is a journey we all undertake together. Well done to our teams for their unwavering commitment to promoting mental health and fostering genuine connections within our communities.
