Welcome to tonight’s event – Comfort in chaos: Looking after yourself and others during challenging times. We will be discussing the impact current world events are having on our wellbeing, and sharing ways we can take care of ourselves and each other in this chaotic time. Hopefully, by the end of the discussion you will feel a sense of solidarity from hearing others’ experiences, and have learned some strategies to take away with you.
So grab a cuppa and settle in! Remember to refresh your browser every few minutes to see new posts, and be sure to hit the reply button to posts to get involved in the discussion too!
My name is Jupiter and I am one of the moderators on the SANE Forums. You may have seen me around over the past few years. My favourite thing about working for SANE is the value it places on the perspective of those with a lived experience, and how it incorporates this into the work it does. Outside of work I love finding new little cafes to try out and pottering around with some arts and crafts.
I am lucky enough to have two co-hosts joining me tonight - @jem80 and @frog. Jem80 and frog are both Community Guides here on the SANE Forums and do an amazing job fostering a warm and inclusive forums space. I will now invite them both to introduce themselves, and then we will get the discussion rolling with a few prompts from me!
