Mental Health 101: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

June 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm AEST

Mental Health Awareness sessions with Mental Illness Education ACT. 

These sessions are aimed at carers of people who have a mental illness and or those who are new to a caring role. Each session will cover a specific diagnosis. 

MIEACTS’s program is delivered in partnership by trained staff facilitator and a trained volunteer educator with lived experience of mental illness. The session will commence with the volunteer educator sharing their personal experience, focusing on a particular moment or pivotal point in their recovery, and guided by MIEACT’s safe and non-triggering Do No Harm framework.

Following on from this, will be a discussion with MIEACT’s educator that will assist carer’s by:

  • Increasing understanding of the prevalence of mental illness in the community
  • Identifying common signs and symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Developing individual self-care strategies
  • Identifying avenues for support
  • Understanding helpful communication strategies
