Safe Spaces Peer Support Program

“The Safe Spaces Peer Support have helped me feel less lonely and gave me an opportunity to talk about my feelings and my experience in a safe environment, with people who get it, who know what its like; the ups and downs.”

The Safe Spaces Peer Support sessions provide you the opportunity to share your experiences as a support person; to connect and listen to other support people in a space where you’ll be accepted and understood.

Your role as a mental health and or AOD family and friend is invaluable. Your experiences and needs deserve to be acknowledged and validated. That’s what sharing with other support people through Safe Spaces can do for you: a confidential, safe space with people that get it!

The Safe Spaces program is just for you, the support person. Our session aren’t open to people living with mental ill health and or alcohol and other drug use. Nor are these sessions open to professionals working in service provision. However, if you support a family member or friend living with mental ill health and or alcohol and other drug use, and are looking for support in this capacity, you’re more than welcome to attend. The only request we have, for the interest and safety of all participants is you wear your “family and friend hat”.

Some of the topics family and friends talk about in these sessions are:

  • Setting boundaries
  • Managing grief and loss
  • Navigating the mental health system
  • Managing medications
  • Where to find help and support

We run Safe Spaces online and face-to-face (in Hobart, Launceston, and Devonport).
