For those new to Peer Group Chats, each chat session focus on a specific topic and is guided by peer workers with lived experience of mental health issues. Counsellors are in the background to make sure chats are as safe as possible for participants. It is a space for peers to share their story and experiences, and connect with those who are going through something similar.
Peer Group Chats are hosted outside of the forums, using a platform called Chatwee. To join an Online Peer Group, you will need to register for an account with Chatwee. On the night, follow this link and log in to your Chatwee account before the group starts.
You can join our Peer Group Chats every Thursday from 7:00-8:30pm (AEST).
Check out the FAQs page for more information.
More on the Upcoming Topic: Since there can be a focus on deficits and symptoms in mental health care, it may be difficult to focus on our strengths. It can make a big difference to our wellbeing when we recognise, take advantage of, and celebrate our strengths- from the big to the small and everything in between!

hello tide is turning. thanks for invite to join discussions .. wanted to join your chat about homelessness ... i even did a little home work , notes on scraps of paper, very unlike me.. then between my unreliable internet and leaner plates on computor, i had to give up.. i can find peoples letters, well some of them, and respond .. some times my letter goes and some time it ends up in the wrong mail box, when i get my p plates one day i will give it another go. so please dont think im not interested in your topics, im in a big district here. lots of cows, no computor teachers, farm life means im as reliable as the weather... not at all... its midnight and im just kicking of muddy boots... so happy trails to you all... tonys from moon base one.
