This year's supported charities
WOW: Innovation in mental health.
Waves of Wellness (WOW) is a mental health and surf therapy charity, promoting positive mental health and wellbeing through their range of innovative programs.
These programs break down the barriers and stigma that prevent people from being well. Get wet and have a good time. It’s simple enough, but the message runs deeper: it’s OK not to be OK, and you don’t have to – ever – go it alone.
Waves of Wellness believes dealing with mental health is not just about dealing with crisis, but also about finding healthy outlets for people who are struggling, recovering and doing fine. By facilitating conversations and connection and by increasing awareness, WOW aims to change the way mental health is viewed and treated.
