Ask a Pro Live: Navigating the Mental Health System October 2019

Ask a Pro Live: Navigating the Mental Health System

 

This month we are continuing our theme of Recovery with a live discussion talking all things Navigating the Mental Health System!

 

Seeking help takes a lot of courage, and taking that first step to seek mental health support is a really important decision! But, where do you start? How do you find the best support for you? How do you know if a service or professional is the right fit for you?

 

We are here to answer all your questions about seeking help, finding services and navigating the mental health system in Australia!

 

Whether you are thinking about seeking help for the first time or have a ton of experience navigating the mental health system, this discussion is for you!

 

Join us live on Thursday the 31st of October 2019 from 7:00pm-9:00pm (AEDT). Let's talk about courage and bravery when accessing and navigating mental health help!

Looking forward to this one!

This is always a really important discussion! From an outside perspective, it may seem easy to suggest to someone to 'just seek help' but many don't know where to start, or find their initial treatment plans aren't working for them!

Hi @Hozzles,

 

I completely agree, there are so many complexities and I hope we can unpack some of these important issues at the live chat Smiley Happy

 

I'd encourage you to submit some questions, it sounds like this is a topic you are very passionate about! Heart

Re: Ask a Pro Live: Navigating the Mental Health System October 2019

Tonight from 7:00pm-9:00pm, we will be interviewing a member of the ReachOut team with professional and lived experience of navigating the mental health system. Jess will be bringing her experiences of navigating the mental health system over the last decade for her mental wellbeing and the wellbeing of her loved ones. She will also be sharing her professional experience as a child and youth peer support worker and advocate.

Jess has held roles working in youth based mental health services over the last 8 years, working with public health and local primary health networks to improve pathways for young people accessing mental health care, and in representing the needs of young people to services and governments. 

Navigating the mental health system can be challenging, and we recognise that every person brings their own unique perspectives, feelings and experiences to this topic. We encourage you to share your thoughts on the questions tonight and help us hold a space for a large range of perspectives.
