The next SANE Australia Topic Tuesday Forum is tomorrow Tuesday 11 May with the topic: 'What Peer Support is and Why It's Great,' at 6.30pm NT Time. Join the conversation at mhaca.saneforums.org/t5/Special-Events/Topic-Tuesday-What-peer-support-is-and-why-it-s-great-Tues...

The forum will explore The role of peer support in recovery. Peer support is all about sharing experiences and building supportive relationships with others who understand what you are going through because they have been there before.
