Overview of services
Naala Djookan Healing Centre’s focus is on early intervention and healing for women and children who have experienced, are experiencing or are at risk of experiencing family and domestic violence. Naala Djookan is not a crisis centre and is unable to provide crisis support. However, we can assist individuals to access appropriate crisis support services. The Centre provides two forms of support services; healing and practical services.
About our healing services
Naala Djookan healing services provide a range of workshops and programs to enable participants to connect with themselves and each other. Our healing services are separated into two main types; learn and grow, and connect and heal.
- Learn and grow: Naala Djookan facilitates workshops and information sessions for women and their families to further expand their knowledge and resilience around safety and Family Domestic Violence.
- Connect and heal: Naala Djookan facilitates programs to enable women and their families to build connections within the community and strengthen their family on their journey of healing.
