The Keeping Our Spirit Healthy and Strong project will involve facilitating cultural activities and practices, therapeutic healing activities and interactive information sessions which interface with and support the eight healing themes as outlined in ‘Our Men Our Healing – Designing for Change’. Yorgum will provide fortnightly healing days, delivered from two different locations in the metropolitan area and healing camps in the south west region to support members of the Stolen Generation raised in Wandering and Marribank (Carrolup) Missions. The project will allow participants to share their healing journey in a safe and confidential environment to help build mateship, ongoing support from peers and to build expertise and leadership to model behaviour for the next generations. The planned workshops and healing camps will provide information, knowledge, skills, tools and counselling support, will encourage healing, empowerment and strengthening of cultural identity.
