Dry July 2016 funding will support 3 programs at ONJCWRC:
- Making Meaning Through Music (music therapy groups for people with cancer and for carers). Funding will support 4 x 8 week sessions over a 12 month period, with 12 people in each session. Music therapy provides a safe way for people experiencing cancer to explore and express difficult emotions.
- Mindfulness Based Street Reduction for People Experiencing Cancer. Mindful meditation practices are run in a supportive small group environment by an experienced accredited teacher. Practices include body awareness, gentle movement and mind training.
- Horticultural Therapy Program. Horticultural therapy is a process of using plants and garden related activities to assist with achieving patient goals and to promote the well-being of people’s mind, body and spirit, under the guidance of a horticultural therapist.
