First of all Welcome to the Forums! Our Community Manager, @NikNik, should be able to answer the question as to whether you are on the list to receive an email reminder for tomorrow's Topic Tuesday. If not, you can login to the forums and access this link at 7pm AEST tomorrow to join in on the discussion.
You are right in that the difference between being a carer for an adolescent compared to an adult is huge. For this reason, it is great that you have expressed you interest in being a part of tomorrow's discussion, so that you may educate yourself around this relatively new dynamic for you.
I hope tomorrows discussion is helpful to you!

A big hello and welcome to tonight's Topic Tuesday!
Tonight we will be discussing how your relationship as a carer could change once your loved one turns 18! We will be getting advice from our friends from Mental Health Carers NSW (thank you!) and we welcome your own experiences too.
So as a starting point, I'd love to hear a bit about what brings you to tonight's session.
Please hold off on specific questions at this point, we will do a call out towards the end of the session, if that's okay!
