Carer Wellbeing - Ballarat Regional Carer Training Expo - EVENING SESSION

Specialist topics

As carers you spend a lot of time focusing on others.  This evening session is about you!  This session gives you permission to take a few hours for yourself, to come together with other carers, to share some yummy food, to relax and learn about the importance of self-care.

5.30pm: Registration & hot food served

6pm - 8pm: Carer Wellbeing

Research around mindfulness and meditation shows it can reduces stress and can improve stress related medical problems such as anxiety and even chronic pain.  It can also build the brains capacity to be more attentive.

So, if you've spent the day with Nathan learning all about your children's brains and how to navigate their moods and behaviours, come along and join Tessa & Deb from FCAV for a night of peace and relaxation. 

Bookings are essential so register today!
