Healing From Within

Healing from Within is a Youth-led creative diversionary program, available to young women aged 14 to 25, who are incarcerated, or at risk of incarceration.

This program utilises creativity, culture, connection and lived experience facilitators and guest speakers to foster an environment of trust, empowerment and safety. Young women learn to express themselves, set goals for the future, and engage in fun and impactful lessons, by women who have walked the path before them.

Healing from Within is currently being delivered  at the Reiby Youth Detention Centre and within various communities.

For more information, or to enquire about referrals, please email hfw@wjn.org.au or call 02 8011 0699

“I want to share a video where I discuss my lived experience, my mission to help young women like myself and how this desire shaped the Healing from Within Program by creating a safe space for young women and girls impacted by the juvenile justice system and ‘at risk’ girls in the community.”
– Ally, former Healing From With Group Facilitator
