Meaningful therapeutic activities for women with mental health difficulties
Hello kind donors,
We are a 16-bed acute inpatient psychiatric unit for women.
We aim to provide a therapeutic space for women to feel safe and supported whilst they are recovering from acute episodes of mental illness, and navigating other complex issues including family/domestic violence, sexual violence, homelessness, isolation, unemployment, and addiction.
Many of the women we support have experienced significant trauma and disadvantage throughout their lives which have contributed to the breakdown of their mental health. The COVID-19 pandemic also further exacerbated the mental wellbeing of our clients.
We are seeking donations to create a therapeutic environment and to provide therapeutic activities to support improved mental health, well being, social connection, self-esteem, and the return to positive life roles and identity.
