The WRAP #91: prevention as incentive, moving beyond R U OK? Day and 60 seconds with Gracieuse Amah

Dear WRAP-pers,

Spring is here and in full swing! As the flowers bloom and restrictions ease, we too are emerging from our homes. The sun is coming out, and for us Victorians we’re starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel.

Yet, recovery from COVID-19 for all, including migrant women, is still a long way to go. In this issue, we talk about the importance of prevention in COVID-19 recovery, and the need for a health system that responds to migrant and refugee women’s needs.

While we’re at it, we also write about transforming the mental health system through gender equity, accessibility and cultural and linguistic responsiveness to improve the health and wellbeing of migrant women.

COVID-19 has exposed and deepened the many inequalities migrant women face. But, we have solutions and together we can build a better future.

Finally, we’re excited to feature Gracieuse Amah, a Creative Director, Dance Teacher, Performer and French Qualified Entertainment Lawyer for our 60 Seconds interview. Brace yourselves for a great interview on strength in diversity, love and positivity.

Until next time,
The WRAP team
