Wuchopperen Health Service Limited’s Men and Male Youth Health team will head to shopping centres and schools this week to help raise awareness of domestic and family violence and the pathways to change.
Men and Male Youth Health Acting Manager Spencer Browne said the first two weeks of the month had gone well, with the team visiting schools and local community centres.
‘We have had a busy start to the month and are looking forward to the next two weeks,’ he said.
‘We have spent time at schools and Manoora and Mooroobool Community Centres and are looking forward to yarning with community at local shopping centres. Our main aim is to promote the message - that by speaking up about domestic and family violence we help get the word out that it’s never ok, and that there’s help available.’
Wuchopperen is holding activities across the month of May to help raise awareness of domestic and family violence and pathways to change. Wuchopperen’s theme for Domestic Violence Prevention Month 2018 is #SaySomething #DVPM and people are invited to post their thoughts on domestic and family violence on social media using these hashtags.
