Event Details

We are excited to announce our next webinar for the Connect & Learn series

Online Communities for AOD recovery:  A new and exciting story

This webinar will explore the objectives and operations of online communities which enable peer support for  those making change in their substance use. Using the Counselling Online forums as a case study, this webinar will explore the use of online communities in a health context for developing connection, self-efficacy and social capital. We will cover the forums’ purpose, story so far and plans for the future as well as:

  • how can online communities assist people in recovery
  • who they are suitable for 
  • what are the benefits


Brittany Pantano is the Online Community Development Officer at Turning Point, Eastern Health. She manages two recovery-oriented online communities - one in the gambling and one in the AOD space and brings a public health background to the role.

Brittany is also the current co-secretary of the Australian Support Communities Interagency, a collaborative group for community managers of psychosocial peer support communities and she is passionate and excited about the growth and development of this additional support for people in the process of change to their AOD use.

Date and time: Thursday 21st November 2019

1:00pm – 2:00pm AEST
