Women’s Health Courses for Post Conflict NI 

Derry Well Women is committed to supporting women who have been directly affected by the Troubles through our Harmony Programme. We now have both knowledge and recognition of the impact of the Troubles on women’s lives.  

“Overall an estimated 53% of people who experienced a conflict related event had a mental health disorder at some point in their life. Women are more likely to experience post traumatic stress disorder than men. Furthermore, women’s symptoms can be more complex and enduring.”  

Women’s Health Courses and Cancer 

Over the years Derry Well Women has led the development of programmes for women living with life threatening illnesses. Our support to women living with a cancer diagnosis includes cancer counselling, a fortnightly cancer support group, a 2-day Cancer Programme programme and an 8-week 36-hour behavioural management programme—The Well Programme.
