We’ll be hosting the inaugural Hope and Recovery (H&R) Forum based on the ABC Q&A program.
There is a lot of research and lived experience that shows the importance of 'hope' in recovery from severe mental illness.
A panel of guest speakers with lived experience (both consumers and carers) will reflect on the part ‘hope’ has played in their lives. Plus, they’ll be part of a bigger discussion with audience members. (See below for how to submit questions before the event).
Specifically, the panel members are:
