Mental health support group proposed for Nanango

IN THE wake of a string of road tragedies throughout the region, a community consultation event will be held to discuss a proposed mental health peer support group in Nanango.

The consultation will be held at Rapid Fitness, on Railway Pde, Nanango, on Tuesday, June 18 at noon.

Everyone is welcome to the event which will discuss guidelines for the support group, its format, confidentiality and group facilitation.

The proposed group will hold weekly one-hour sessions, which will be run by mental health facilitators.

People who would like to volunteer their time to help facilitate the group are also invited to the community consultation event to register their interest.

Facilitators will operate under a roster system, taking it in turns to host the weekly sessions.

Organisers are looking for mental health facilitators with relevant experience and qualifications.

However, if your experience is in education or nursing, then you may be considered, after undergoing more mental health training.
