6.30 -8pm, Thursday 19th Dec
11.30am – 1pm, Friday 20th Dec
Mental Illness Fellowship of SA, 5 Cooke Terrace, Wayville
This is the presentation I (Sarah) recently delivered at the World Hearing Voices Congress in Melbourne. It will run for an hour with an opportunity to ask questions. The talk was developed to help close a gap in the Mental Health First Aid training, which does not mention dissociative crisis. Principles of crisis work are covered, as well as recognising and usefully responding to severe general dissociation, and common crisis points for people with parts (Dissociative Identity Disorder, or ‘multiple personalities’). Sarah is a peer worker with lived experience of severe dissociation and DID, and many years experience in supporting other people in crisis.
Books from the DI Library will be on display, as will our Healthy Multiplicity Poster. This talk is suitable for mental health workers, clinicians, people with lived experience, and friends and family. Please feel welcome to share this information.
Please RSVP directly to Mifsa on (08) 8378 4100. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah at sarah @di.org.au
