this conversation echos what was said again in the Royal Commission into MH in Vic, we all need to feel that our MH is important, have people that we can connect to around our MH and wellbeing, have choices and options that can really help us when we need help and that the places in which we live, work, play & study care. Love hearing that food was important too! Wonderful ideas here..

Great idea 'What's in and what's out'; helps staff to focus and put aside things beyond our control.

Yes there is a sense that we as health care worker need to be able to cope with anything. The reality is that we are human and need to be supported in our health and wellbeing.
