Dubbo’s new HOPE program has launched monthly and free Lunchbox Learning sessions that in April will focus on self-harm.
Community members and workers in the “helping industry” are invited to attend the April 26 session from 12.30pm at Dubbo Neighbourhood Centre. They are asked to RSVP by calling 1800 312 881 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Run by a team of highly-skilled clinicians, HOPE ( Helping Our People Evolve) provides bulk-billed mental health, psychiatric and medical services to people impacted by trauma.
HOPE was officially launched on Wednesday with its champions, Darren Higgins and the Brothers 4 Recovery, inspiring others to tackle mental health and substance abuse, reports the program’s clinical director Ann-Maree Hartley.
