What's happening on the forums in December 2021 🗓
Hi SANE Community,
This month is our last events and discussions update for 2021! We are excited to share upcoming discussions, and to hear your thoughts on topics you would like to see in 2022.
What's happening in December 2021?
We will be joined by Peer Support Worker @flybluebird talking about communities and the places where you feel connection and belonging. We would love to hear your experience of finding community, and your advice to others who may still be searching for places they feel they can be their authentic selves.
21st December: Coping with holidays and the end of the year
The last month of the year can one that brings us a wide range of feelings for us all. For some, the end of the year can be really exciting, and for others it can be really painful. No matter what feelings the end of the year and holidays brings up for you, your feelings are valid. We will be holding and space to talk about coping during the end of the year, and ways we can support each other's experiences during this time.
