HEALTH & WELL-BEING

CAWA’s programs address overall well-being, including both physical and mental health. We aim to raise awareness regarding a woman's overall health and provide practical advice on a number of topics.

CAWA recognizes the individualized and unique experiences of different groups in our programs. We are also committed to increasing awareness about the importance of mental health as it is often stigmatized and overlooked in Arab communities.

 

 Many of our sessions and workshops are hosted by doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals so we can ensure our programs are effective and helpful.
