Community Activities and Events

2018 Mental Health Winter Forum - Choice, Chance and Change

Join Fusion in partnership with TAFE Queensland East Coast for the Bi-annual Winter Forum 2018[11468KB]. Hear from a range of high profile guest speakers including QLD Mental Health Commissioner Ivan Frkovic. This year explore themes:
• Choice: What informs the choices we make, do we see other possibilities, what moves us forward, or do we continuously get bogged down in our old lives.
• Chance: Every choice can bring with it some good, some bad, some learnings and some luck, it’s only a matter of taking that chance, letting go of your old life…and taking the next step
• Change Growth can be daunting, change can be daunting, but nothing is as daunting as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong. The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old…but on building the new.
Friday 6 July 2018, 8.30 to 4.30 pm at TAFE QLD East Coast Campus, Mooloolaba.
