👏Celebrate a member
On the Lived experience side of the forums, we have received a nomination from @Judi9877 (which we 100% agree with) for @DJMasters for your friendliness and ongoing support to fellow forum members in the Good Morning thread.
On the carer's side of the forums, we would like to celebrate @myheartache for your wonderful words of encouragement to other members and for sharing some great practical self-care activities for when things get tough when caring for a loved one here.
🎉Forum events to take part in:
- Topic Tuesday// BPD awareness – Flipping the script: Changing the Narrative on BPD with a special guest from Spectrum // Tues 6th October,7 pm-8:30 pm AEST (more info to come).
We are very excited to announce the arrival of a new topic area called Welcome & Getting started. This is a space for new members to introduce themselves to the community and read some tips in navigating around the forums. We hope that this area will make it easier for all of us to welcome new members and support them when they first join the forums.
