Self Help Support Group for Women in Derby addressing social and emotional wellbeing issues with an holistic approach.
The Art and Yarning group provides a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members. The group is made up of diverse people and is an opportunity for both professional and amateur artists to have a place to paint, but more importantly, a safe place to share stories, cultural knowledge, support those with mental health issues, learning difficulties, disabilities and for those who are experiencing grief and trauma.
The Moorditj Yoka Womens Group meets at LAA on Saturday afternoons which is a culturally safe environment. The women make things, they yarn and share stories and support each other if issues arise and they don’t know who to approach. Many of the women are carers for either their partners, grandchildren and other family members as needed. Mental Health is rife in the Aboriginal community due to past policies, additions and the impact of serious drug use by children of the women. The women often have to parent 2 generations: their children and their grandchildren. This group is a respite from the issues of family life i.e. mental health, disability, demands of young children, ill partners and other issues. The group continues to learn about cultural knowledge through guest speakers, cultural tours, Noongar language lessons and many other aspects of Aboriginal life. There is still so much more to learn from those who hold the knowledge of the Aboriginal way, their journey is a life long journey of learning.

Muggin Aboriginal Corporation was incorporated after community members identified a gap in services being provided to the Aboriginal community in Armadale and surrounding areas. It was identified that there is a need for a place to call our own, giving the community a sense of ownership and pride, a meeting place, a culturally appropriate place, a user-friendly Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander managed place to carry out the needs of the community and meet the needs of the people.
