Women's health program



The aim of the Women's health program at Gurriny Yealamucka Health Service is to encourage Indigenous women to learn from each other and mentor each other to improve the quality of life for all Indigenous women. The core business of the program is the Family wellbeing program - an empowerment, personal development, and leadership program. The program's sessions involve sharing stories, discussing relationships, goal setting, and teaching life skills.

In addition to the Family wellbeing program, the Women's health program also provides a range of other activities for women to participate in, including:
