Over the past year, we have seen a tidal wave of demand for support from all our programs and services at Weave, with a particularly marked increase in the need for support around mental health and domestic and family violence issues.
Our Speak Out Dual Diagnosis Program engages young people impacted by both mental health and drug and alcohol issues. Speak Out provides a holistic long term support model committed to sustainable, positive change for young people.
Speak Out uses a trauma informed, wraparound holistic model of care that responds to the issues that young people identify as their priorities. Support for achieving mental health, alcohol and drug outcomes is woven into the overall program of support, which also includes support around housing, education and employment, legal issues, social and cultural connection, creative advocacy projects and community events and more.
In addition, there has been a significant increase in demand for our Women’s Domestic and Family Violence Program (DFV). We are experiencing consistently high numbers of requests for support, as rates of DFV continue to rise.
All of Weave’s programs are under-resourced to meet the current need. Please support us by making a donation. Every contribution goes directly towards empowering people to change their lives.
