🔦Spotlight on:

 

On the 13th of April, we welcomed a special guest from ARCVic (The Anxiety Recovery Centre in Victoria) to talk about living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. You can take a read of the discussion here.

 

At the end of the month, we were joined by special guests from Turning Point to discuss all things related to substance use, mental health, and recovery from addiction. Together, our guest speakers and the community explored places where people can seek help for substance use habits or addiction and help to support a loved one who might be on their recovery journey. You can take a read of the discussion here.

 

SANE Forums team also shared a few things members need to know about staying anonymous and maintaining your privacy on the SANE For.... Whether you are new to the forums or have been here for some time, it might be good to read through this thread Smiley Very Happy
