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.

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.

Footscray VIC 3011

Tablet

We would like to request 3 tablets for women to use on the ward to stay connected with their families. Not everyone has the resources to visit, or feel its appropriate for their children to visit an inpatient psychiatric unit. We would like to offer an alternative way for families to keep connected during their recovery on the ward. Maintaining contact with your children and continuing to nurture from a distance can be a really important part of the recovery journey.
