Hi Everyone,

Welcome to June! Firstly, I want to give credit for this beautiful photo to our Research Associate, Dr Dayle Raftery, who has just returned from presenting at the Aboriginal Health Forum in Broken Hill. Thanks very much to FWLHD for inviting us to present the findings from our Local Project in Wilcannia. 

Speaking of Broken Hill, we are very excited to announce that we are bringing Dr Suzie Hudson to Broken Hill on the 4th & 5th July to offer training to any mental health worker interested in learning more about working with people experiencing harm related to alcohol and drug use. You can register to attend here.

We are also excited because this week the “Fix My Child” workshops with Dr Jenny Brown will take place in Dubbo and Orange. We are pleased to see both these workshops fully subscribed and, if the feedback from the Merimbula workshop is anything to go by, we know attendees will get a lot out of it. 

This month’s podcast episode is a relevant one for many of you. Dr Caitlin Miller speaks with Julia Reynolds and Ross Jacobs from ANU about how to get the best out of Telehealth and Digital Resources. While there’s been an explosion of online sessions since 2020, are we actually getting the best out of this modality? How can we structure online work in the most effective way possible, in line with the latest in best practice? Don’t forget, if you missed it, last month’s interesting chat with Lisa Warren about Managing Aggression and Working with those who use Violence. All podcast episodes are available on the Peregrine Portal or from your usual podcast platforms. 

The Peregrine Portal also contains our Practice Toolkits – This month, we are excited to publish our toolkit for Working with Older Persons. This is a short summary to help you get started in your work with people 65 years and older. This is a really packed toolkit, full of helpful tips and resources. Many thanks to Caitlin Miller for putting this together over many months. 

Finally, thank you to everyone who contributed to the Learning Needs survey that will be informing our 2023-24 learning plan. We have identified 4 main state-wide themes and will be bringing you some news about how we plan to meet those needs later in the year. 

Well, that’s it for June. Hope you are all keeping rugged up with a hot cup of tea as the winter weather sets in. Until next time.
