FlourisHER is a Women & Girls Health & Mental Wellbeing Programme

It offers support with mental health issues caused by health or situational issues – always in a “judgement free space.”

FlourisHER’s goals are to support women and girls to:

  1. Feel empowered in their health and wellbeing both in their personal and professional lives and feel more able to cope with their experiences around women’s health and mental wellbeing throughout the different life stages: Relationship – Motherhood – Empty nest – Menopause – Bereavement
  2. Improve their knowledge and skills around women’s health and mental wellbeing, via education, empowerment and empathy.

FlourisHER focuses on four key areas of women’s health & wellbeing:

Women’s Health Issues

Women’s health issues can have a significant impact not only on our physical health, but also our emotional and mental wellbeing, resulting in potential feelings of anxiety, depression, irritability and anger. As such, FlourisHer offers support to women & girls impacted by:

  • Endometriosis
  • Menopause
  • PMS & PMDD
  • Reproductive health issues

Violence Against Women & Girls

Gender based violence can have potentially devastating impacts for individuals affected by it. FlourisHer offers support to women and girls impacted by:

  • Sexual violence, assault & abuse
  • Domestic Violence
  • Stalking
  • Image-based abuse

Pregnancy & The Maternity Journey

Issues around fertility, pregnancy and maternity can significantly impact our mental and emotional wellbeing. FlourisHER offers support to women & girls impacted by:

  • Traumatic birth
  • Infant loss
  • Fertility issues
  • Maternal health & wellbeing

Cost of Living

People living in poverty or experiencing financial stress are more likely to develop mental health and wellbeing difficulties. Financial difficulties can cause people to feel stressed, anxious and hopeless. As such, FlourisHER offers support to women and girls impacted by:

  • Poverty
  • Financial stress
  • Living in an area of social deprivation
