September 2023 Conversations with Families & Friends Face2Face
This is for you! These education and information 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. We will have a range of guest speakers sharing information with us about a range of topics. The topics have been chosen as a result of listening to what families and friends have told us that they want to hear about.
You can come along for a whole session, or just a little while. You can share, contribute, and ask questions, or you can just listen. You can use the chat to ask your questions and keep your camera off to protect your privacy and confidentiality; whatever is comfortable for you.
The topic for this session:
The presentation is from Chris Fox, Group Director, Mental Health Services Reform Team. Chris will provide an update on AOD and Mental Health Services Reform.
