@Autumn23 I haven't heard much about any specific events or activities yet, but I assume if there are going to be any details posted it'll be on the official website or on the Australian Psychological Society Facebook page! Smiley Happy

Hey guys!

I am also involved in this field and I have some other information and a website for everyone to have a look at.

This website has a focus on wellbeing, happiness and self care. It has a lot of tips and information from professionals on 'ways to thrive' in these areas. Anyone and everyone can utilise this information regardless of having any mental health condition or illness.

It also includes a wellbeing survey to measure various areas of your life. It is able to compare these areas to similar aged people but also collates information in terms of sex and age. I generally would say comparing yourself against others may not be beneficial but in this case it may allow you to recognise that you may need more support or assistance in specific areas of your life. It could also highlight areas that you could focus on to improve overall happiness and wellbeing or it may show you a great place to start!

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right.
