REACH is a nine week educational support group program being offered by Wollongong Women’s Information Service for women who have depression or bipolar disorder and are looking for strategies to manage their illness and wellbeing.
Run by a qualified Black Dog Institute trained facilitator, the REACH program is suitable for women eighteen years and over, who have lived with a diagnosis of depression or bipolar disorder for at least one year.
Eligible participants will also need to demonstrate capacity to participate in a group setting; commitment to attend nine weekly sessions; acceptance of their illness and motivation to implement ‘wellbeing’ strategies.
