The Women’s Mental Health Alliance and Women’s Health Victoria host webinars topical issues in women’s mental health.
Women’s Health Victoria (WHV) welcomed the opportunity to provide feedback to the draft National Obesity Prevention Strategy in November 2021.
This submission to the Federal Parliamentary Inquiry into Mental Health and Suicide Prevention highlights the importance of a gender-responsive approach to mental health.
This submission largely focuses on the primary prevention of men’s violence against women in line with the focus and expertise of WHV.
This submission responds to the consultation paper informing the development of the National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2030.
The Power to Prevent Coalition, representing over 100 organisations in the legal, health, community, family violence, business and union sectors, strongly supports the recommendations of the Sex Discrimination Commissioner’s report into sexual harassment at work. We call on the Australian Government to take this crucial opportunity to join with civil society to make the changes needed to make Australian workplaces safer, healthier and more respectful for all.
A group of more than 100 diverse organisations, unions, researchers, peak bodies, health professionals and lawyers are calling for State, Territory and Federal Governments to take urgent and coordinated action to prevent and respond to sexual harassment in Australian workplaces.
Our submission to the National Obesity Strategy consultation recommends that the National Obesity Strategy adopts a weight-inclusive framework that emphasises health over weight, takes a gendered approach to health promotion and takes an active role in reducing weight stigma.
