Empowering women in health and self-care

Published on Tuesday, 22 February 2022 at 11:11:07 AM


Tackling Indigenous Smoking Educator Kelly Capewell from the GRAMS Gascoyne Outreach Service (GOS) was invited to Ngala to promote the Tackling Indigenous Smoking program and message.


Ngala is an organisation which aims to support parents and carers in raising children and enhancing their wellbeing.


Kelly had an opportunity to speak with the women at the event and provide advice on family care, developing healthy habits, and practicing self-care.


Self-care is about taking time out regularly for yourself and doing things that will make you feel energized, clear-headed, and refreshed.


Ngala organised some crafting activities at the Ngala office for the ladies to decorate and unleash their creativity. Participants also got to take home a goody bag filled with stationery and self-care items.


Crafting is an effective way to relieve stress and improve well-being. By focusing on an activity, you can take your focus away from the negatives in your life and calm your thoughts.


Kelly had a fantastic time interacting with the ladies and especially enjoyed meeting a young mum who wants to give up smoking for the sake of her child.


Thank you to Ngala for inviting us to the event and giving us an opportunity to talk about our programs and services.
