At my routine cervical screening appointment at WHFS in Northbridge last year, I needed some support for my family. I was feeling very unhappy with my life as I had young kids and I couldn’t study or find any work.
My partner wasn’t very supportive in the family and I think he inappropriately touched my youngest son. I called the police and from then on, I no longer felt safe in this environment. My counsellor helped me to get support for my mental and sexual wellbeing, as I didn’t want any more unplanned pregnancies. My counsellor also assisted me to get my other child in childcare. I attended a program to get help with applying for employment.
Currently, I am considering a TAFE course offered by WHFS. Since then, I understand more about my own health so I can help my own children in the future.
