Interactive webinar series: peer consultation (4 sessions)
The state-wide Alfred Mental Health and Gambling Harm Service is committed to providing a space and opportunity for Gambler’s Help staff to come together and support each other in a four-session video conference peer consultation series.
This series hopes to provide a forum for people to share collective knowledge, reflect on their work, gather ideas and support colleagues across Victoria.
In 2020 these sessions will be conducted monthly in the first Tuesday morning of each month, commencing April 2020. It is beneficial to register for this initial block of four sessions planned for 7 April, 5 May, 2 June and 7 July.
