June Community Wrap

Hi all,

We are back at it with another recap of what has been happening on the Forums in the past month!

 

#️⃣Trending topics:

 

 

👏Celebrate a member:

Thank you @bipolarbunny, for creating an Ask me Almost Anything about Bipolar, and for generously sharing your lived experience to support other members of our community who are also living with and/or caring for a loved one who is living with bipolar.

 

Thank you @Determined  for creating a beautiful thread full of inspiring and thoughtful quotes of the day.

 

@Pato  for offering incredible peer support to another member on the Forums by sharing your own experiences and the different ways that have helped you to understand and manage them here

 

@Jay5 for creating a thread for forum members to support each other when covid restrictions started again. This has created a space for all to share what we can do and control during this difficult time.

 

We want to thank @ShiningStar  for nominating some of these members and helping us to highlight members' fantastic contributions to the forums. 

 

🎉SANE events to take part in next month

The next Online Peer Group Chat is on Thursday 1st July, 7pm to 8:30pm AEST. The group chat will be about procrastination and time management. Take a look here for more information on how you can join the discussion.

 

🔦Spotlight on:

At the beginning of June, we welcomed a group of members to join our existing Community Guides (CGs) in our Community Guide program. For those who may not know already, CGs are members of the SANE Community that consistently engage in the forums by providing knowledge, offering peer support, and helping to role model the forum's principles and culture Heart

 

June was also Pride month! We celebrated and acknowledged Pride month by expanding on the key themes and messages that were shared in the IDAHOBIT: Week-long discussion. If you haven’t already, please join in the discussion here! 🏳️‍🌈

 

In celebrating World Refugee Day and Refugee week, we also hosted a World Refugee Day Morning tea. Here, we had a great discussion with fellow forumites about the different ways we all can play a role in achieving unity and togetherness for all and tips on how we can safely support people from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds to share their experiences.

 

quote.pngQuote of the month:

"Sometimes, it is very difficult to find the best treatment. Oftentimes, I truly think that the major part of healing comes from within ourselves." - HenryX

 

"Pride means loving ourselves for who we are and loving all those around us and allowing them to be their authentic selves without imposing limits or judgments. Pride is love!"- Meggle

 

"I've found this forum to be invaluable. It's really helpful sometimes to be able to talk through issues anonymously, or simply to virtually "catch up" with people who understand how complicated life can get when there's a MI family member” – Smc
