Do you have depression or bipolar disorder?
The WWIS REACH program is a free nine week educational support group program for women with a mood disorder, run by qualified Black Dog Institute trained facilitators. The REACH group is suitable for women over 18, who have lived with a diagnosis of depression or bipolar disorder for at least one year. Eligible participants will also need to demonstrate:
- Capacity to participate in group setting
- Commitment to attend nine weekly sessions
- Acceptance of their illness
- Motivation to implement ‘wellbeing’ strategies
Topics include: fostering strengths, dealing with loss and grief, identifying early warning signs and triggers, nurturing wellbeing and support networks and creating a unique ‘Wellbeing Plan’.
The REACH groups are facilitated by Nat from Wollongong Women’s Information Service who is a trained Black Dog Institute facilitator
