Ensuring the wellbeing of our staff and community.

 

Welcome – We are still here for you.

These are unprecedented times for our region, indeed across the world, as we become increasingly aware of how our own health and wellbeing is connected to the health and wellbeing of those in our families and everyone in our community.

WHLM has adjusted our ways of working in order to meet your and that of partners and stakeholders whilst implementing the advice from our health authorities.

The WHLM team continue to work from home. All phone lines and emails will operate as usual. If you have any trouble getting in contact, please call our main reception – 5443 0233

We continue to deliver our Telehealth service – this means women can make an appointment for Options counselling and speak with our Well Women’s Clinic nurse. Please call our reception for further details 5443 0233.

WHLM acknowledges that people in our organisation, community and society are being impacted by Covid-19. This is a very challenging and uncertain time and we will all be affected in different ways.  WHLM is learning more and more about what this pandemic means for gender equality, sexual and reproductive health and the prevention of violence against women, and we are actively sharing this insight across the region.

This is a rapidly changing situation and we are monitoring guidance from the Victorian Government on a daily basis. We appreciate your support and understanding as we all adapt to these difficult times.

Take care, we look forward to speaking with you soon.

 

If you feel unsafe or are concerned for someone’s safety, please call 000 or contact the police in your state or territory.
