Support Groups Awareness Week is a time to recognise, celebrate, and raise awareness of Support Groups and the invaluable support they provide. The campaign runs annually in the last week of October.
Coordinated by ConnectGroups, the Peak Body for peer Support Groups in Western Australia, Support Groups Awareness Week provides an opportunity to promote the existence of Groups, to highlight the benefits of belonging to a Group, and to showcase the work of the peer Support Group Sector in ensuring healthy, connected, and thriving communities.
Peer Support Groups are primarily volunteer-led and run with minimal resources, and it is essential that the work of the Sector is recognised and valued for its contribution to the health and mental health of our communities.
Join us during Support Groups Awareness Week in spreading the word about the existence of this unique Sector, celebrating its work, and recognising the value of supported, included, and connected communities.
