Women’s Health Week has come to an end for 2020. Central Highlands Rural Health (CHRH) celebrated the campaign online this year highlighting the importance of women taking time for their health and wellbeing.
With the current climate that we all find ourselves in, it’s important that well all look at self-care as a necessary part of our lives and not something that is selfish or self-indulgent.
The Population Health team at CHRH created a couple videos demonstrating how you can take a few minutes for yourself to look after your physical and mental health. Jean Hailes Women’s Health Week Ambassador Tina McCarthy, also created a video for our community on what women’s health means to her and why it’s so important. You can check out all these videos at the CHRH Vimeo page.
The Population Health team have put together a range of women’s health resources and information that has been distributed as a special edition of their Population Health & Wellbeing newsletter. You can view the women’s health edition here and subscribe to stay up to date with future editions here.
During Women’s Health Week 14 staff at CHRH took part in the all abilities ‘virtual step challenge’ as they collectively walked the 210km Goldfields Track from Ballarat to Bendigo. They participated to get active and make their moves count whilst raising funds for Jean Hailes to help women and girls access women’s health information, education and services across Australia.
You can still help support CHRH in this challenge and donate at the Women's Health website.
