Peer Group Chat // Learning To Live With Anxiety // Thursday 23rd March 2023, 7-8:30PM AEDT

Hey everyone!

 

On Thursday 23rd of March 2023, we will be holding a Peer Group Chat on the topic of Learning To Live With Anxiety.

Anxiety can be really challenging to deal with and overwhelming at times, especially when you need to be focused on life’s priorities. Let's come together to discuss our lived experiences and strategies for dealing with anxiety. This discussion could be a great time to learn some coping techniques or contribute to someone else's recovery.

 

The event start times across Australia are below:

This is currently held in daylight savings hours:

WA: 4pm 
NT: 5:30pm

SA: 6:30pm 

QLD: 6pm

NSW, ACT, VIC & TAS: 7pm 

 

For anyone unfamiliar with Peer Group Chats, each focuses on a specific topic and is guided by Peer Workers with lived experience of mental health issues and recovery, &/or caring for someone with complex mental health. A counsellor is also present as a moderator to help ensure a safe environment for individuals and the group. It is a space for us as peers to share our stories and experiences, and connect with those who are going through something similar. 

 

Anyone is welcome to join! Tagging some members who may be interested below:

Im devastated that I can’t make this one either. My anxiety is out of control at the moment. It may have helped

Hey there @Captain24 I'm sorry to hear that you won't be able to make this group chat. 

 

We are currently working on the transcripts being made again so hopefully they won't be too far off. But in the mean time, we can possibly post the questions here afterwards in this thread if you wanted to contribute and possibly have a conversation in a time that suits you with the same questions (I am sure that there are many others in the same boat that won't be able to make it). 

 

Let me know what you think ❤️

That’s sounds great @amber22. I might be able to join late.

See how you go 🙂 @Captain24 If you're not able to then we will post the questions underneath this thread anyway to keep a discussion going for those that can't make it live!
