    We have an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of the Forums experience.

    For a long time we know you have been waiting for an improved platform to allow you to continue the incredible support along your Mental Health and Social and Emotional Wellbeing.

    The time has finally come to enable this – but we want your input first!

    To ensure we are meeting your needs, we want you to help guide us and test our new technology before we make it live to everyone. To do this, we are setting up an Online Peer Advisory Group. 

    If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in, or you are unsure but interested in learning more - please head to the expression of interest by clicking here

    The closing date for submitting an expression of interest is by 11.59PM (AEST) Friday July 2, 2021. 

    This is the first of many exciting updates for the Forum Community, we will be keeping you up to date before we make any changes and appreciate your involvement along the way.

    Thanks for your support of the Forums and we look forward to working with you to make this safe and supportive space even better!

    Hi Sophie_M

    This is super proactive and brings members and management closer thus making the forums more productive not to mention member retention and valuing their lived experience to provide support to people in pain

    Count me in!

    Geoff as you know you will need to put in an expression of interest form.

    I think it is great so many are interested. The information explains how many members from the forum will be included in the group and the general make up of the group.
