Centacare is running a six-week Road to Wellbeing support group for women who have experienced domestic violence.

Make new connections and explore common experiences, including:

  • Tactics used by perpetrators to exercise power, coercion and control
  • Common myths about domestic violence
  • Its impact on children
  • Ways to heal in order to live a life free of fear

Hosted  by the Murray Mallee & Adelaide Hills Domestic Violence Service, the free group will run every Friday, from October 19 to November 23, 10am-12.30pm, at Centacare’s Murray Bridge office, 6/2 Sturt Reserve Rd.

Research shows women living in isolated locations experience high rates of domestic and family violence, and sexual assault, yet they live further away from specialist resources and services. This can effect their help-seeking decisions, coping mechanisms and their ability to identify as experiencing domestic violence, even if they are at imminent risk.

Connected, well-informed regional communities can create vital safety pathways for vulnerable families.

Centacare is the state’s largest provider of best-practice support for at-risk women and children outside metropolitan Adelaide.

For more information or to book a place in the group, please phone case managers Pam and Anne on (08) 8215 6320.
