Women and Mental Health
We all need support with our mental health at different times. Our focus in this priority area is just as much about promoting good mental health as it is about supporting women with mental illness. Many of our programs are designed to support women through difficult stages in their lives while others are about building resilience. Some of the services we provide in this area are:
- short term counselling;
- providing social supports and groups;
- information about services; and
- assistance in dealing with some of the stresses of daily life like navigating service systems.
The safe environment of tour centre is a welcome haven for some women.
We also partner with other specialist services or collaborate on advocacy programs to improve policy and services around mental health.
