The Mackay Women’s Centre provides resources, runs workshops and facilitates community information programs aimed at educating and empowering women.
The community education sessions aim to improve the physical and mental health of women in the Mackay and region. Topics include chronic disease management; mental health and wellbeing; sexual and reproductive health; parenting and healthy ageing.
Regular community education sessions include:
- weekly visit from a financial counsellor
- monthly Centrelink community education sessions
- the Enhancing Emotional Health courses
As well as these information sessions, we have a number of groups and activities aimed at providing support and socialisation for local women.
We welcome any feedback from the community as we are always looking at innovative ways to keep up with contemporary needs.
The Mackay Women’s Centre also provides written material, information and resources for professionals, community services workers, students and women in the community in relation to pregnancy, parenting, family relationship issues, health and wellbeing.
