EveryWoman’s Journal is a proactive health program based on research demonstrating the positive effect journaling has on mental health. The program’s free, two-hour workshops offer women a safe and private environment to connect, or reconnect, with their inner selves. These workshops are led by trained volunteer facilitators who guide participants through a sampling of the techniques.
What We Do
Attend a Workshop
Workshops last two hours and are found statewide throughout Wisconsin.
Each participant of a workshop receives a guidebook, journal and pen to begin writing their way to better health.
Attendees can sign up for ‘Step Two’, an online journaling prompt and information sent monthly by the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation to help them continue with their writing.

“I attended the EWJ workshop to find a place to begin (a new life), to find my new me, and to find a path to go forward on. The journaling has allowed me to put closure to the pain and disappointment of my past life, put all events in the right perspective, and figure out where I want to go on to.”
EWJ Participant, Rosemary K, 2015
