Community Services

Health Promotion

Our health promotion service is provided from the Main Clinic at 25 Third Street.

The objective of the Health Promotion Unit is to work in partnership with Wurli Wurlinjang’s clinical and non-clinical staff in providing high level health promotion services.

The unit also promotes a comprehensive health promotion service to Aboriginal people in the Katherine community.

StrongBala Justice

Our Strongbala Justice Program is provided from our Strongbala Shed at 8 Third Street.

“Men supporting men for gudwan (good) health”

The StrongBala Men’s Health Program, established in 2009, provides a central location where men can conduct regular forums to discuss the issues affecting Indigenous men in the Katherine region. It also provides support for men who are experiencing difficulties, to find a way to engage into health and wellbeing services.

StrongBala continually promotes to men participating in the program their role and responsibility in reducing family violence and improving male/female and family relationships and promoting change within themselves for their family.

Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Program

Our AOD Program is provided from our Strongbala Shed at 8 Third Street.  A female AOD Worker works from the Wellbeing Unit office at 3/10 Third St.

Broadly, the StrongBala program aims to give indigenous men regular access to culturally appropriate holistic health, justice and alcohol and other drugs (AOD) services as well as providing educational sessions through a Personal Development Program (PDP).  Referrals to internal and external health providers and other agencies are provided as required.
