The JNC acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work, the Gadigal and Bidjigal People of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that these lands always were and always will be Aboriginal lands. We celebrate First Nations Peoples’ connection to the land and recognise the importance of Indigenous voices and culture. We would like to advise that there may be images or videos on this website of people who have since passed.

Breaking Down Depression & Building Resilience Workshop

The JNC is running a free community workshop on depression and resilience on Wed 13 Jan 2016 in Maroubra.

We all experience periods when we feel low and a bit depressed. But how do we know if this is more serious or when to seek support? The JNC is offering a free one hour workshop “Breaking Down Depression and Building Resilience”. Guest speaker Christine Lopacinski, from the Black Dog Institute, will explain the symptoms of depression, what treatments are on offer and where to find professional support.

With one in seven Australians experiencing depression in their lifetime this workshop is a useful session for all in the community including friends, family, carers and caseworkers. Please feel free to share this information with anyone you know who may benefit from attending this introductory workshop living in the Randwick local government area.
