By doing so we aim to assist in reducing the incidence of family violence and its impact on individuals, families, the community and the health system.
We support our staff both professionally and personally in relation to family violence to ensure their wellbeing and safety.
As an organisation we aim to assist those in need by connecting them with services which make a significant contribution to addressing the issues of family violence and contributing to prevention, changing behaviours and community attitudes through practice, education and advocacy.
The Nursing and Midwifery Health Program Victoria provides sensitive and compassionate screening, assessment, referrals, individual support sessions and groups for those seeking help to manage these health concerns. We believe that early intervention is the best way to address health challenges and encourage our colleagues to contact us to discuss how we can best help.
