Women's Health West

  1. About This Service

    Women’s Health West (WHW) is the women’s health service for the western metropolitan region of Melbourne.

    Our health promotion, research and development program plans and implements activities designed to promote women’s health, safety and wellbeing across three key areas – sexual and reproductive health, mental health, and prevention of violence and discrimination.


    Our family violence service provides women and children with the range of services they require while in crisis – such as court support, crisis housing and case management – through to services designed to promote healing and recovery, such as women’s and children’s counselling.
    We work collaboratively with communities, government and local agencies, and provide secondary consultation for health, community and other service providers.

    All women living, working or studying in the western metropolitan region of Melbourne are eligible for membership of WHW, as are organisations with western region clients.
