Taking Care of Worries

MHACA has collaborated with the Women’s Safety Services of Central Australia (WOSSCA) to develop a shared resource with MHACA.

The project is inspired by providing mental health support to Aboriginal women who are experiencing or have experienced domestic and family violence however the messaging will be broad enough to encompass being relevant to any Aboriginal women who may have ‘too many worries’ on their mind.

Taking Care of Worries is both a poster resource and A5 Flyer.

Please contact MHACA 89504600 or email info@mhaca.org.au if you would like some copies of the poster or flyers for display or distribution.

The resource was finalised in December 2021, and accompanying social media resources will be shared this year.

This week is Borderline Personality Disorder Week. We all share the fundamental need to be treated with respect and dignity, free from stigma and discrimination. This year’s 2022 BPD Awareness Week campaign reminds us to look at the person alongside the labels, ask what their experiences are and how they continue to make sense of the world. For carers, family, friends, supporters and clinicians it’s a reminder that underneath negative or harmful coping behaviours a person can often be struggling. Let’s celebrate the person they are alongside their diagnosis, acknowledging their strengths, resilience and courage in order to SEE THE PERSON ! For more information go to www.bpdawareness.com.au/The way in which BPD is experienced by people is diverse. It's important we make sure each person is heard outside of stereotypes and cliches. Everyone's experience is different, valid and important. Some things might be relatable to you and some things won't. ⁠You're the expert of you. ⁠#bpdawarenessweek2022 #seethepersonbpd #strongerthanstigma #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthcarersmatter #bpdcarer #strong #strongpeoplesupporteachother #mentalhealthadvocacy #survivor #mentalhealth #livedexperience #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonalitydisorderawareness #borderlinepersonalitydisorderadvocate #advocate #activist #mentalhealthadvocate #consumer #consumerconsultant #consumeradvocate #borderlinepersonalitydisorderadvisor #australianbpdfoundation #bpdawarenessweek #bpdaware #bpd #bpdrecovery #bpdawareness ...
