ConnectGroups and WARCA Partnership Launch
ConnectGroups has partnered with the WA Recovery College Alliance (WARCA) to offer peer Support Groups workshops and training specific to mental health and wellbeing. The partnership aims to support leaders, Facilitators and group members to address and manage burn-out.
Across the world, Recovery Colleges have demonstrated that an educational approach can be successful in supporting people to overcome barriers, including challenges related to mental health, substance use and other life issues. People with lived experience and those with experience through training/profession work together to design and deliver courses. Courses are informed by community interest and offer local solutions to local challenges.
A Partnership Launch is being held at the WA State Library in August, and we invite our members to join us to learn more about the training courses available and how to get involved. The event will also be an invaluable networking opportunity for peer Support Groups.
Date: Tuesday 17th August 2021
Time: 9.30am – 12.00pm
Venue: WA State Library, 25 Francis Street, Perth WA 6000
