Description

WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR? On October 10th (World Mental Health Day), Behind The Seen will presenting an opportunity to unwind for first responders,(paramedics, firefighters, police, rescue personnel) their family members and those who support their mental health. ( psychologists, doctors, social workers, mental health nurses, peer supporters, exercise physiologists, occupational therapists, chaplains, support group facilitators, mental health advocates)

WHAT'S IT ABOUT? It's a morning of stress less tips, inspirational insights and most importantly laughter! Two renowned speakers- Amanda Gore and Greg Van Borssum

IT'S FREE- WHAT'S THE CATCH? No catch. It's free because it's World Mental Health Day. We want to acknowledge that being a first responder means dealing with repeated stressful situations. Exploring lots of different ways to relieve stress is essential to wellbeing . We want to acknowledge the valuable support role first responder family members have- they too face additional stresses as a result of their first responder's commitment. And we want to acnowledge all those people in our communities who genuinely care about and support the mental health of our first responders. By providing this event for free, we're "helping the helpers".

Lunch is free too- we figured some people may want to hang around and chat after the presentations- and we don't want anyone being "hangry!"

So consider it a gift - one which will entertain on the day, and hopefully give you some extra tools for your mental health toolbox. And a chance to catch up with some like minded people. After all, conversation and connections are great for mental health!
