The Yiriman Cultural Health Service is unlike most other Aboriginal Health Services in the Country.
It delivers complementary health programs and services to the mainstream health care network in the West Kimberley and provides a community service.
Utilising products made by Yiriman Women derived from traditional plant sources in its healing and therapeutic activities, support will be provided to young mothers, and in mental health and on-country healing programs.
As capacity grows, treatment of patients will be delivered in conjunction with health care professionals working in western medical practice.
Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our traditional healing services.
