Come and Yarn with us!

IAHA understands that COVID-19 is effecting us all in a variety of ways, so we want to make sure we stay connected during these times of uncertainty.  With the beauty of technology IAHA are now hosting regular yarning sessions for our members to catch up with the IAHA family from all around the country and just have a check in and a familiar face.   These yarning sessions are for networking and sharing information during this time of change  hosted by IAHA’s own Tanja Hirvonen and Kylie Stothers. 

These sessions won’t be recorded due to the privacy of anyone who attends and this which allows us all to feel safe whilst sharing information on the day. 

There will be different sessions for our different membership allocations so please check in with dates for the right session for you. Each Yarning Session is allocated 90 mins although the hosts may finish earlier as per their discretion.

Yarning Session Thursday 17 December 2020

The IAHA Secretariat, along with IAHA Directors Anthony Paulson and Patty Councillor, will be hosting a (virtual) Yarning Session on Thursday 17 December at 6pm (AEDT).

This session with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health workforce will discuss how regulation may promote the profession and, in order to lead this work, how an advisory group would be established, what the vision and purpose would be, possible Terms of Reference, and some initial priorities to explore.

We will also seek nominations from interested members to participate in the Advisory Group for this project.

This is a casual setting with an agenda that will allow participants to ask questions, share, or just listen.
