@RedHorse we have been so happy to see you back online, and joining in so many discussions! Your peer support to others has been a stand out for us this month, and noticed by our peer support team- well done!
@frog Thank you so much frog for creating a fantastic thread that uplifted and inspired us to share some of our positive news stories.
🗓 SANE events to take part in next month
This month, we have our forums calendar available for you to view! It includes the events and discussions we will be hosting this month. You can find the calendar here What's happening on the forums in October 2021 🗓 and below:
Last month we hosted some new activities including a new discussion Let’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.
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
SANE is promoting Mental Health Month #ShareYourOneThing 💙 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!
🌸 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."
