Wellbeing Day in Wonthaggi

Date: Tuesday, 28/03/2023
Time: 9.45am–2.45pm

Location:  Summersalt

Program: What's On

Address: SUMMERSALT Gymnastics, McKenzie Street, Wonthaggi VIC, Australia

Come along to meet other women diagnosed with cancer and take part in some fun and informative activities that can enhance your wellbeing.

Changes that can come with cancer treatment may challenge our physical and mental wellbeing and have a negative impact on our quality of life. Emerging evidence shows cancer patients may benefit from a range of mind-body and creative therapies and lifestyle practices. These are used alongside standard medical treatment to reduce side effects and improve emotional health and wellbeing.

It is always important to speak with your medical team about the therapies and activities you are using.

Counterpart staff and Peer Support Volunteers will be available to chat throughout the day. Counterpart provides support and information to women diagnosed with any type of cancer.

9.45am                       Welcome and about Counterpart
