They're back! The next Building Resilience programme runs as an all-inclusive one day event on 5th February and all the information is available at the website.

Building Resilience is a not-for-profit association, set up to empower individuals who suffer from depression or low moods to seek assistance through conventional, natural and creative therapies. More than one in five Aussies are facing this every day, so it's a very important issue that can be worked on in safe, comfortable surroundings.

I wrote about their maiden, August programme back in July.

Some of the topics covered are conventional such as psychology, exercise, nutrition and medication; others are natural such as acupuncture and naturopathy; whilst some are creative (yay!) such as art therapy.

“We are endeavouring set up a program that helps participants to gain clarity about their path to happiness, through the assistance of a variety of trained practitioners.”


When: Saturday, 5th February, 2011 When: 9am - 4:30pm Where: The Exchange, Shop 1, 42 Blamey Street, Kelvin Grove, QLD Pricing: $70 or $40 concession. The cost to attend is based on your current financial means and is self-selecting. For example, if you are employed full time, choosing the full price would be appropriate. If you are not currently employed, then choose the concession price. Relaxing, huh?

You should totally check it out. I think I might even sign up for this one, so I hope to see you there!
