In our Lived Experience side of the forum this month we are celebrating @Lise07 for their amazing month of contributions- sharing some helpful tips, particularly in Topic Tuesday here and further discussions here
In our Carers forum we are celebrating @Sherry for her bringing some laughter and comical relief in sharing jokes here - sometimes when things are tough sharing some laughs can just help, even if just for a moment!
PS- if you ever feel like sharing something you would like to celebrate for yourself or shouting out a celebration to another member, check out theThumbs up Thursday- Woohoothread!
This month we have THREE events on! Woo! Check them out above ⬆️ - first up we have an event next week in line with BPD Awareness week- we have special guests from Spectrum Vic. Followed by an awesome Topic Tuesday in the carers side with our special guest from the SANE Australia Help Centre and then an Ask Us Anything event which allows us to spotlight other organisations and this month it will be CanTeen!

Lived Experience Forum:
One thing to remember is you are only human. You will make mistakes and you will fail. It's hard, harder for some, easier for others. But just remember that with every failure you are improving yourself. - said by @Meterpreterhere
I also find that by researching myself (medications his on, therapy approaches he takes part in) helps him open up more as well. If he knows and trusts that I am taking a interest in what he is doing he feels more supported. - said by @Mrsjoneshere
