The Women’s Peer Support group is a unique support group delivered by the Stigma-Free Society.  The group is unique in that it consists of a small number of female participants who are generally 18+ who live with a mental health condition such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety and/or depression.  You do not need an official diagnosis, and we are here for you if you have mental health concerns.

The Stigma-Free Society is committed to forming a group that represents the diversity of women in Victoria. We strongly encourage women of colour, women with disabilities, young mothers, First Nations women, women who identify within the LGBTQ2+ community, and women from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds to attend.

The group includes having conversations ranging from the topics of mental wellness, career building, self-care to coping strategies.  The women’s group is a place of healing,  where women can build friendships, work toward acceptance of their mental health and obtain support to manage their lives.

Melinda O’Neill and Jamila Douhaibi are your supportive Women’s Group Facilitators.
