Edit: Sadly this event has been cancelled 😦
Come and join us for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOT). SHineSA are hosting a ReFRESH forum in the afternoon of May 17th in Woodville. There will also be an interactive panel, resources, and most importantly of all, rainbow cake. (although I’m not baking this one) There is a cost and you do need to enrol. You can find all the details in a print ready pdf here and the enrolment online system, which is still open, is here.
“Sarah is an amazing individual who is part of the queer community, a consumer of mental health services, and also a worker in the sector. With an open and creative approach she will take a fresh look at self-care – we all hear about it as workers in regard to ourselves and our clients, but how useful is the way we frame it? When self-care becomes more work which is measured in terms of success or failure, and carries with it notions of obligation and shame, can we take stock and look at it in a different way?
The forum on 17 May at Woodville will explore mental health and LGBTI people, with particular reference to some of the people who exist at the intersections in the community: nonbinary/genderqueer people and bisexual/pansexual people.”
I’m very pleased to be speaking at this event, self care is an important topic and one that is often not well handled. I’m also proud to be a visible part of the queer community, speaking to inclusion and diversity in that space.
