What we'll do
Thought I would organise a meetup here to play some games of pool. Unlike previous times I won’t make a booking for the private pool room or ping pong room, but if there enough RSVPs I’m open to reconsidering this option. The afternoon usually comes down to $5 a person as tables are charged at a rate per table. We can go for a drink afterwards either at Dome, San Churros or Northbridge Brewing Co depending on people’s tastes.
Why should you come to this event?
Did you know that the feeling of loneliness is the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes per day? https://bit.ly/2DMqoXU. We fully understand the challenge that loneliness has on wellbeing. Our goal is to connect like minded people with fun and engaging activities so that you create friendships with others to reduce that feeling of isolation. We want you to feel part of our welcoming community and have an avenue where you can improve your mental health and wellbeing in a safe and fun setting.
Acceptance: we provide a safe and inclusive environment for our members to be socially engaged irrespective of their background
Community: we endeavour to give each and every one of our members and event organisers a community to belong to and friends to connect with
Fun: we keep things fun because they say laughter is the best medicine!

We’d love to hear from you
While we tend to identify as peers with a lived experience of mental health issues and also love promoting the values of acceptance, community and fun for mental health, we are not a complete substitute for professionals in helping you with the mental health issues you face. Please be mindful that the service we offer is complementary to other treatments you may be undertaking in your recovery journey.
