Caring for someone can be complex, challenging and even stressful at times.

If you’re a carer for someone close to you, join us at the Stonnington Carers Forum. This interactive session will provide encouragement and support for those caring for an older person, a person with a complex mental health issue or disability of any age.

The forum is an opportunity to learn strategies and gather advice. Hear from key presenters LifeWorks, who will be sharing practical ways to look after yourself and practice self-compassion when the going gets tough, and a range of community support agencies.
