Women and our Relationship with Overwhelm
If, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, and the World Health Organisation lifestyle illnesses are the leading cause of illness, disability and death in Australia, perhaps we need to consider the way we live and what we have taken as normal. The growing use of the word 'overwhelm' is one such example. A state of overwhelm as something we should not ignore.
This program will unpack the anatomy of overwhelm, focusing each week on a specific area and building practical strategies to build lasting behaviour change. 6-week course to be the change you want to see in your lives
Session 1 Saturday 12th May - The anatomy of Overwhelm Session 2 Saturday 19th May - The Yes/No Dilemma Session 3 Saturday 26th May - The Good/Bad Factor Session 4 Saturday 2nd June - Setting new Foundations Session 5 Saturday 9th June - Bringing it all together Session 6 Saturday 16th June - How to move and groove
The Why Be You project looks at a whole community approach when working with young people, where 'it takes a village to raise a child'. School, home and community are all part of that village and therefore the programs, presentations and workshops have been designed to offer a rounded approach.
Youth Groups Support for young people approaching high school as well as youth groups in the community to embrace meeting other people going through similar stages. Much of what is shared in the youth groups will be expanded during the holidays by offering mini workshops. Read more
Parent Support There are distinct challenges when children hit teenage years, they are no longer children yet, all too often, they do not have the skills to be adults either.

Workshops, presentations and programs are offered to parents through schools and in the local community. Read more
School Young people spend so much time at school and the pressure on teachers to be all things to all people is immense. Rather than reinvent the wheel, the Why Be You Project aims to offer support to current PDHPE and Wellbeing programs. Read more
Community Raising children is all about working as a team and the expression 'it takes a village to raise a child' becomes the structure that offers a larger family, a network of support that safeguards the young person both physically, emotionally and psychologically. The Why Be You workshops, presentations and programs in the community are focused on empowering us all to be active members of the village. Read more
