Alicia Chester, a Master of Social Work student, is completing her final placement here at Mental Health Families and Friends TAS.

Mental Health Families and Friends Tasmania is researching the impacts of confidentiality and privacy as experienced by family and friends to assist the inclusion and partnership in mental health and AOD service provision and support roles.

Family and friends have told us that confidentiality and privacy is quite a point of confusion and is subsequently acting as a barrier to including families and friends, and limits sharing important information with this key partner in recovery, that would help them provide physical and emotional support.

If you would like to have your voice heard on this topic, this is your chance to be heard and help us make a difference.

You are invited to a group session to take part in the discussion and share your experiences and viewpoint. This will be a safe and welcoming space where everyone and their contributions are respected and kept confidential. Please note, by registering, you consent to the focus group session being recorded to later be transcribed. Names and any identifying information will be removed and once transcribed, the recording will be deleted. We do this to ensure we capture all the information, and can give participants our full attention.

 Because your time is valuable, you will be reimbursed with a $20 gift voucher.

The focus group will be on:

29th of June at 11am-3pm

2 Terry St, Glenorchy

in the Banksia room on the Ground floor or via zoom

Light Refreshments will be available
