Peer Group Chat // Fun, Comfort, And Joy // Thursday 7th July 2022, 7-8:30PM AEST

Hi everyone! 

 

Our next Peer Group Chat on Thursday 7th July 2022 will be on the topic of 'Fun, Comfort, and Joy'!


When is the last time you did something just out of fun or curiosity? In adulthood, it can be easy to leave behind the things we might’ve done as kids that made as happy, as we or society might view them as “childish” - despite the fact that they could bring us happiness and joy now- for example, using soft plush toys for comfort, or playing games. Come join this chat to reflect on how we might be able to incorporate things- big or small- that bring us comfort or joy back into our lives.

For those new to Peer Group Chats, each chat session focuses on a specific topic and is guided by Peer Workers with lived experience of mental health issues and recovery. A counsellor is also present to assist in ensuring a safe environment for individuals and the group. It is a space for peers to share their story and experiences, and connect with those who are going through something similar.
