As a support person, it is important to take a break and spend some time talking to people who understand what you’re going through. We hope that our Face-to-Face Safe Space chats will provide an opportunity to share how you are feeling with others who understand the ups and downs of being a family member or friend of someone affected by mental ill health. We will also host guest speakers and have mental health carer peer workers in attendance, to help answer any questions you may have. Our chats are open to anyone over the age of 18 living in Tasmania and supporting a person with mental ill health.
