On Wednesday 27 May, the team at BEING flew to Tamworth to hold our 2015 Recovery Conference, ‘BEING in the Country’.
This year’s Recovery Conference focused on the barriers to wellness faced by rural Australians. It was jam-packed with information and inspiration.
We heard from rural consumer speakers who shared their experience and stories of recovery. We learnt about the positive effect of strategies for wellbeing such as movement, mindfulness and CBT in workshops hosted by consumers and wellbeing advocates. We were also introduced to new ideas and resources through the organisations that held a stall on the day.
Here are some testimonials from the day:
“Everything was great. It was hard to choose between the workshops – I wanted to do all of them.”
“It was very successful. Well worth travelling nine hours to come.”
BEING would like to thank everyone who travelled to Tamworth and shared their experience and ideas with us. It would not have been the same without you.
