Our Vision

“Some of the greatest battles women fight, are the ones in their own minds.”

                                                                                                                                                   - Diana Williams


The Fernwood Foundation is a registered charity that provides support for women with anxiety and depression.

100% of money raised by the Foundation funds research at Deakin University, investigating the role that diet and nutrition plays in mental wellbeing.

As well as research, Deakin is developing scientific, evidence-based programs and services for women with mental health issues. The Foundation is dedicated to equipping all women with information and practical strategies for good mental health.


The Fernwood Foundation is very passionate about the mental wellbeing of all Australian women. We believe strongly in helping women reach their full potential, supporting them through the normal stresses of life and making them feel like a valued member of their community.

For nearly 30 years, Fernwood has been providing a safe and nurturing environment to empower women to become healthier – both inside and out. We are proud the Foundation can support the mental wellbeing of all Australian women.
