We’re proud members of the following organisations

mental health families & friends TASMANIA

recognises the deep, ancient and everlasting history and culture of this island lutruwita upon which we learn, work, and live, and its people, the palawa people. We wish to acknowledge the traditional owners and continuing carers of the nipaluna land on which we have the privilege to meet on today.

We acknowledge Elders past, Elders present, future and evolving Elders and pay our respects to those who did not and will not attain the status of Elder because of the ongoing pain and the legacy of colonisation.
