What we do
Individual and Group Therapy from trained Psychotherapists and Social Workers
WWHG offers peer support, therapy, and education to female Veterans and First Responders living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other forms of trauma in a safe, supportive environment.
Our members plant and maintain a vegetable garden in Spring and Summer while receiving peer support and therapy. All of the produce of the garden is donated to an area Women's Drop-in centre. The women also maintain a colony of chickens that provide fresh eggs weekly to the same centre throughout the entire year.
In the Winter, members give workshops in canning and food security, as well as engaging the broader community with education and awareness about living with PTSD.
Through this continuous cycle of engagement with nature, community, and peers, the Women Warriors' Healing Garden promotes an ecosystem of care for women living with the challenges of PTSD.
The Women Warriors' Healing Garden is a Registered Canadian Nonprofit (#999247-2) headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario
