What We Do

WHAT – The Women’s Mentoring Foundation’s (WMF) purpose is to improve service delivery for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) women and young people to help them heal from hurt, distress, grief and trauma experienced in their life. We support women primarily in rebuilding their self-leadership abilities through increasing confidence and focus – thus resulting in better mental, emotional and social health.

HOW – We do this with the aid of our grief share, healing, self-development and leadership programs, as well as speaking engagements, therapies and various events held throughout the year. Contact WMF to find out more about our speaking engagements on offer, or to book a speaking engagement.

WHY – To enrich the healing process and provide access to resources to help prevent suicide and mental breakdowns.

PREVENTION – WMF knows prevention is crucial for improved wellbeing. We go to schools, workplaces and CALD communities.

All courses, speaking engagements, and programs communicate the importance of prevention, addressing the most common behavioural patterns identified in women following trauma:

  • Emotional abuse
  • Suicide
  • Self-harm
  • Physical abuse and more

Women’s Mentoring Foundation (WMF) provides benevolent relief to women from all diverse cultures, suffering from distress and/or poverty, and helps women heal from hurt, distress, grief, and trauma. The foundation is designed for building women’s identity through increasing their confidence, focus, better mental, emotional, physical, and social wellbeing; and the prevention of suicide.

As a Registered Harm Prevention Charity we value promoting the prevention or control of human behaviour that is harmful or abusive to human beings including but not limited emotional abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, suicide, self-harm, substance abuse, harmful gambling and other forms of harm that is unacceptable in our society.

WMF welcomes women from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities to their new beginning, to the start of their transformation from hurting to healing (following any trauma), and to the life they’ve dreamt of living, but which seemed impossible! Something which they can only do once the recovery process starts – and that can only happen at a deeper inner level.

WMF will provide emotional and social support delivered by myself and other qualified counsellors who share a common experience. By being able to provide genuine examples of overcoming adversities in our own journeys, we can inspire, empower and strengthen self-willpower in order to support our clients.

We welcome interest and support from the community in mentoring and skilled volunteer roles.  We work collaboratively with many partners in the health, social  and community services sector for referrals.

Mission & Core Focus

The Women’s Mentoring Foundation (WMF) is on a mission to promote mental health and combat harmful behavior in women from diverse backgrounds. Our core activities include crisis support services, with a primary focus on suicide prevention intervention, and peer mentoring to aid individuals in crisis management and recovery. We also conduct suicide prevention education to empower individuals and communities with the knowledge and skills to prevent suicide, as well as programs to prevent harmful behavioral patterns. WMF provides bereavement support groups and information/referral services to ensure our clients have access to resources and specialized help. Additionally, WMF is committed to adaptive initiatives that align with our mission and core focus, always prioritizing the prevention of harmful behavior and the promotion of mental health and well-being. Our ultimate goal is to create a world where women can thrive emotionally, free from harmful behaviors, and with the support they need.

WMF’s mission is centered on fostering the mental well-being of women while addressing harmful behaviors. WMF offers critical crisis support, peer mentoring, and education on suicide prevention. Our programs extend to preventing harmful behavioral patterns through classes and awareness campaigns. WMF also provides bereavement support and ensures clients have access to valuable information and referrals. We remain adaptable in pursuing initiatives that align with our mission, all with the overarching goal of creating a world where women from diverse backgrounds can flourish emotionally, free from harmful behaviors, and with access to essential support for a brighter future.
