The current women’s program is community based and aims to empower support and equip women to live healthy and balanced lives. It includes groups, counselling, training, mentoring, volunteer opportunities, social events and an annual women’s retreat.
A focal point is the art therapy group which meets at the Bellarine Living and Learning Centre each week. This group provides a safe environment for women to express themselves and encourage each other. Creative arts are used to develop self-awareness and personal skills to move forward.
The Women’s model utilises a strengths based, relationship building, group mentoring approach. It values ongoing learning and over the past ten years many of the women participating in the Foundation 61 community have completed Certificate IV in Drugs & Alcohol, Certificate IV in Mental Health, Diploma in Counselling and a Mentoring course.
