Support and Education Group
Support & Education Meeting
We have 2 speakers tonight at 6-8pm
Matthew Peppercorn from Pact talking about CEP (Co-existing Conditions). Most recognise that those we support with a Mental Illness often have a secondary diagnosis and this discussion will be around how best to deal with these situations. Matthew is a very popular speaker and has attended our meetings in the past and has connected well with our families.
The other Speaker will be Jo Knowles from CAP (Christians Against Poverty) and she will give a quick presentation about the new budgeting service that has made available for the Dunedin area. This is a non-judgmental confidential service that may be of real value to a family member suffering a Mental Illness as well as financial issues.
Jo maybe remembered by some of our families as she previously worked for SF Otago as a Fieldworker some years ago.
