SAFE SPACES EDUCATION & INFORMATION SESSIONS
Regardless of where you are in your journey, supporting someone living with mental ill health and or alcohol and drug use can be both rewarding purposeful, but also lonely, exhausting, and stressful. We know that education and information can make it a little easier to cope and go about our support role.
Safe Spaces Education and Information sessions provide the opportunity to hear from guest speakers from mental health or alcohol and drug services talk about a range of topics, including, but not limited to, how we support someone living with a particular diagnosis, how we support someone using a particular substance, how we set boundaries, and introducing services and organisations that are out there for you and the person you support.
This is a safe space and time just for you, so you’re welcome to come along for a whole session or just a little while. You can share your story, or you can just listen. You can keep your video off and you don’t have to display your name to protect your privacy and confidentiality.
Who are Safe Spaces Education and Information sessions for?
Anyone supporting a family member or friend with mental ill health and or alcohol and drug use
Family and friends that provide informal, unpaid physical, practical, mental social, financial, and or emotional support
Family and friends that want to be understood, feel heard, and to take a second for themselves in a safe and confidential space

So that our sessions remain true to the experience of family members and friends, these sessions are not open to service providers or consumers.

Please note, we have moved our Education and Information Sessions online to create a safer space for families and friends who are looking for support, education, and information. This will allow families and friends to be able to keep their camera off and note have to display their name.
