๐Ÿ”ฆSpotlight on:

Last month we hosted some new activities including a new discussion Letโ€™s talk about Emotion: Introduction.  The Let's talk about Emotion discussion series will cover 4 emotions including Anger, Fear, Sadness and Happiness, allowing us space to explore how we feel emotions, the role they play in our lives and ways we can cope. 

 

We started the discussion with the first discussion on Anger and are now discussing Fear. You are more than welcome to join in!

 

Last month, we were joined by one of our amazing Peer Ambassadors for Topic Tuesday talking about Body Image and Eating Disorders. Among the conversation, we spoke about the important messaging of Body Image and Eating Disorder Awareness Week, Respecting all Bodies, and what that means for each of us in our lives. Sarah courageously shared her story of recovery, and her tips and thoughts for those who are on their own recovery journeys. Check out Sarah's story and the Topic Tuesday discussion here Topic Tuesday // Body Image and Eating Disorders // Tues 28th September, 7:00-8:30PM AEST 

 

๐ŸŽŠSANE news:

SANE is promoting Mental Health Month #ShareYourOneThing ๐Ÿ’™ Share the simple things that help your wellbeing  for Mental Health Month and encourage you to get involved. Head over to the thread above to share your one thing. 

 

Last month, we said goodbye to @HappyCastle and @pipinya from the forums. Both have been incredible advocates for the forums and will be missed! In the coming month, we will be welcoming more peer support workers to the forums as well, so lots of new team members to meet!

 

๐ŸŒธ Quote of the month: 

 

@Candydipper1 "I know it's hard right now and I know it feels like it's gonna be like this forver but it will and does get better. It'll take time but it's worth the wait...I know life's hard but your tough and can push through anything that life throws at you. Your all worthy, loved, caring, precious, wanted, needed, beautiful, fighter, strong, kind and so much more." HeartHeartHeart
