Health Awareness

Promoting healthy communities

A key focus of the QCWA is improving the health and wellbeing of women across Queensland.

Aside of our successful Country Kitchen’s Program, each year members nominate health campaigns to promote and engage with, such as the Queensland Melanoma Project and Women’s Mental Health.

QCWA Branches and Divisions across Queensland participate with the program by facilitating meetings, seminars and events, involving speakers and professionals linked to the programs, thereby building awareness within communities statewide.

Women’s Mental Health 

Mental health affects many aspects of our lives, regardless of whether we live in the city or in a remote, rural or regional part of the state.

In rural and remote areas, suicide has a huge impact on families, prompting a range of support needs. Natural disasters such as flood, drought, cyclones and bush fires has seen an increased demand for mental health services.

For women, mental health poses a diverse and difficult set of pressures. Life events such as having a baby may trigger post-natal depression. Mothers worry their children could be bullied at school or struggle to succeed. Concern for teenagers under pressure to behave a certain way or be influenced by peers and potentially make poor choices. Stress in caring for elderly parents; family relationship breakdown; children leaving home; loss of a partner; hormonal and emotional changes; and the inevitable health issues which emerge as women age.

Any of these events could trigger heightened stress, anxiety, or depression. We need to recognise that it is alright to ask for support and seek advice from a qualified health professional. For more information contact Lifeline or Beyond Blue.
