WHO CAN COME?
We face different challenges throughout our life and so at the moment our Open Up sessions cater for specific demographics. We currently have Open Up sessions available for any guys and gals aged 18-29 and a separate session for men over 30.
Come by yourself, or bring a friend. We encourage people of all social groups and genders to come along.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Nothing! It is and will always be free.
WILL I BE ASKED ANY QUESTIONS?
Nope, in fact in fact it's totally okay if you don't speak at all.
WHO RUNS THE SESSION?
A One Eighty Open Up facilitator aged 18-29 runs each session. Facilitators are trained in Mental Health First Aid.
WHY SHOULD I COME ALONG?
Let's be real, we all experience challenges. And while they can be isolating and lonely, in our experience, talking about them is an opportunity for profound connection with other people who've been there too. Imagine a whole generation of people who know how to Open Up!
It is important to remember that Open Up is a community support group, and not a professional mental health care service. If you need extra support, or have further questions about your own mental health, please do not hesitate to reach out to a trained professional at anytime (24/7) at Lifeline on 13 11 14. In cases of emergency, always call 000.
