Women of Confidence
Being “overweight” can have negative effects on your self-esteem. If left unaddressed, the impact of continuing low self-esteem can be catastrophic for women.
Having low self-esteem lowers women’s resilience and ability to cope with the stresses of life. This can place women higher risk of developing mental health problems such as eating disorders, depression or social phobia.
The PLUS+ Women of Confidence Program is focused on helping women build confidence and self esteem, by providing group activities in a safe environment that examine factors influencing their self-perception.
Participants in the program, are encouraged to consider the impact that various life experiences have had on their self-perception, such as abuse and violence – physical, psychological and emotional. Then they are empowered to establish a new personal frame of reference, via a diverse range of activities used to enhance opportunities for self-development.
