October Launceston Safe Spaces Peer Support
This is for you! These peer support sessions are for the people who support or supported a family member and or friend living with mental health and or alcohol and other drug use. These sessions are a safe time and place for you to talk to, learn from, and provide and recieve support from other families and friends. Safe Spaces Peer Support provides an opportunity to be listened to, to share your experiences and wisdom with others with similar lived experience, and to connect with others who get it.
You can come along for a whole session, or just a little while. You can share your story, or you can just listen; whatever makes you comfortable.
These sessions are hosted by the Lived Experience Project Officer, and Social Worker
