🔦 Spotlight on:
This month we have launched our annual review of the SANE forums! By contributing to the survey you’re helping us to make the Forums even better. For more information, you can check out our announcement here
At the end of June, we also launched the You Are Not Alone information hub, and had a 5-day discussion thread with the carers community around how to manage when someone close to you has suicidal thoughts or attempts suicide. For more information about the resource and event, take a look at the discussion here.
Quote of the month:
Lived Experience Forum:
"Somewhere in all of this, if we are fortunate, and I was, we find that in it all that has happened, we can find things that give meaning to these life experiences; we can use our pain to help others. We can grow in ourselves and become more compassionate, especially towards those who struggle with their mental health and those who care for them." – said by @Darcy in the 5 day You Are Not Alone event - Crisis Advice for Family, Friends & Carers here
