Mental Health Week Trauma Recovery Support Groups Re-Launch Oct 6, 2014
Mental Health week saw the RE-launch of the trauma support group again, after 10 years of not finding enough people ready to meet at the same time, day and stage of healing from traumatic experiences. What a wonderful group enjoyed the support from each other and the therapist.
We had5 women in this first group. Others had between 4 and 7 people. The groups have continued ever since.
The day & time for the next group commencing when we have enough participants will be negotiated to suit all concerned but will otherwise follow the same process as the current group as follows:
Venue, Cost, and Time Committment
493 Charles St. NORTH PERTH 6006
Fee range according to Income:- $20 – $70 per week
After 8 sessions, the group will conclude – with an option to continue in another block of 8 sessions. A key component of mental health and trauma recovery is empowerment; therefore we aim to put you in charge of your recovery and the decision to do another 8 week block will be entirely yours.
New participants will be able to commence in the following block, but each block is closed once the first session has commenced.
New Trauma Support Group to commence early 2016

WHAT WE WOULD FIND IF WE WENT BEYOND OUR USUAL HORIZONS?
Broadening Horizons is both my MISSION statement & business name because stretching to new ways of being, and enhancing other’s lives is FUN, & VERY INSPIRING.
Are you game?
