Happy New Year from the coordinator

Hi everyone,

Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year’s break.
I have been back in the office this week and there are many exciting Awareness projects in the pipeline. Our first meeting for the year will be on Monday the 13th of February and everyone is welcome to attend. Closely following this, we have two forums coming up in the next couple of months. On 16th February we will be holding a joint forum with the Collaborative for Research and Training in Youth Health and Development discussing research and peer support in youth mental health services, and a forum on coexisting disorders, how mental health and addictions sectors can work together is planned for March. I will be about on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays like last year, and look forward to hearing from people who are interested in being involved in Awareness or any of our working groups.

13 June 2011 – AGM

At 1230 we arrived at the St Albans / Merivale Bowling Club and began our customary pre-meeting networking session as we consumed a delicious lunch. Near one o’clock we began the formal AGM when we were rudely interrupted by a magnitude 5.5 earthquake which sent us cowering under the tables. We assembled outside shortly afterwards and decided to postpone the AGM until next month.
