On the Lived Experience side of the forum, we want to celebrate @Arty  for starting this thread to reflect on their recovery journey and personal experience with taking “time out” to take care of their wellbeing here. Thanks Arty!

 

On the Carers forum, we are celebrating @Sophie1 for sharing some very useful carer non-negotiables when supporting loved ones with complex mental health issues here. Cheers to that!

 

 

🎉 Forum events to take part in next.

 

This month we have a very exciting event coming up for both forums! Please come along!

This month we have launched our annual review of the SANE forums! By contributing to the survey you’re helping us to make the Forums even better. For more information, you can check out our announcement here

 

At the end of June, we also launched the You Are Not Alone information hub, and had a 5-day discussion thread with the carers community around how to manage when someone close to you has suicidal thoughts or attempts suicide. For more information about the resource and event, take a look at the discussion here.

Lived Experience Forum: 

"There is being alone as well as loneliness - you have now joined us here on the forum so you will not be alone - the community is here for you." – said by @Zoe7 here.

 

Carers Forum:

"Somewhere in all of this, if we are fortunate, and I was, we find that in it all that has happened, we can find things that give meaning to these life experiences; we can use our pain to help others. We can grow in ourselves and become more compassionate, especially towards those who struggle with their mental health and those who care for them." – said by @Darcy  in the 5 day You Are Not Alone event - Crisis Advice for Family, Friends & Carers here
