Worawa - Wellbeing Strengthening
In partnership with Worawa Aboriginal College the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences received gift pledges to conduct a project focused on enhancing wellbeing of young Aboriginal women. The project began with creation of a briefing paper entitled ‘Addressing the Health and Wellbeing needs of Worawa Students’ (Peeler and Alford, 2012). The Worawa holistic wellbeing program includes a number of considered, sophisticated and evidenced initiatives aimed at strengthening young Aboriginal women's wellbeing. A ground breaking report on the program "The Worawa Way: a strengths based approach to wellbeing for young Aboriginal women" is available here.
