The ASA Wellbeing Advocates Committee is hosting a session to kick off peer support for facilitators and seekers, either in a 1:1 or small group setting where both facilitator and seeker have similar goals in peer support.
During this event, you’ll have ample opportunities to share your experiences, receive support and/or gain practical skills on how to facilitate peer support.
So, whether you’re here to seek support or to learn how to facilitate peer support, we welcome you to our Peer Support Session and take the first step towards finding the support and connection that you need in the ASA Peer Support Network & Practice Group.
DATE: Wednesday 7 June 2023
TIME: 7:30pm–8:30pm AEST via Zoom
