The Wurramiyanga Men’s Healing Project is a program designed to strengthen, support, and empower men. It will aim to develop the capacity of all men through cultural, educational and therapeutic healing activities. Importantly it will provide reconnection to traditional ways and respected elders within the Tiwi community for men. Through the various activities men will be enabled to strengthen their spirit, mind, body and cultural knowledge and customary practice.
The healing activities provided will aim to assist men to overcome issues that affect them and engage more effectively with the relevant support services. This will increase their confidence and capacity to gain meaningful employment, and overcome issues such as family and domestic violence, incarceration, poor health & social & emotional wellbeing, suicide, alcohol & other drug abuse. The activities will also aim to strengthen and empower men to support others in need.
