Goodbye from Gina!

Hello wonderful community, 


After a year and a half of posting, reading, supporting and being all round inspired by the ReachOut community, the time has come for me to say goodbye


I have loved working with the incredible Moderators, Builders, and members to grow and support this great community, and to encourage powerful peer support.


This community offers a unique opportunity for all of us to grow, and be supported through life's ups and downs - it is rare to find such a generous and kind bunch of people on the internet! 


Keep doing what you all do- supporting one another with grace and kindness, tapping into your own strength and resilience, and being open about when you need extra support. You're in very safe hands with the rest of the ReachOut Community team. 


There might be opportunities for me to jump back on and say hi, but my last day as a Community manager will be Wednesday 5th of June.


Thank you all  for having me here in your community and for being all round great! I will miss you! Heart

Re: Goodbye from Gina!

Thank you @scared01 - yes very true, having the time to say goodbye is important for me, and for the rest of the community. 


You sure can! - I'll be staying in the peer support space but moving away from online work, and into a harm-reduction community role - working with drug users in the community to improve safety and empowerment, and advocating for harm reduction drug reform! Something I am very passionate about, and excited to be working with a peer-led team in this area Heart
