Topic Tuesday// Living a Meaningful and Fulfilling Life with Schizophrenia// Tues 31st May, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST

On Tuesday, 31st May 2022, we'd like to invite you to join us for a peer-led, lived experience discussion with SANE Peer Support Worker @RiverSeal  for a safe place to talk about schizophrenia. In this event we will talk about stigma, misunderstandings, connection with others, and hope. This will be an opportunity for our community to learn more, and also connect with others with shared experiences.

Welcome to everyone joining us or reading along tonight. We would first like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the various lands across Australia we are all joining this discussion from. We pay deep respect to the Elders of those Countries, past and present, and we further extend that respect to any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people with us tonight, reading along, or reading back. 

 

Following on from Schrizophrenia Awareness Week, our special guest, SANE’s very own Peer Support Worker @RiverSeal  will be joined by myself and our fellow peer support worker Girasole for a discussion about living a meaningful and fulfilling life with schizophrenia.
