The October Sanctuary meeting was on Tuesday, October 9, from 4 to 6pm at Skylight, 5 Cooke Tce Wayville.

Kirsty Burns who works in the Short stay Unit (Mental Health) at Flinders Medical Centre was our speaker. She explained what happens in the Emergency Department when we take our family member there, who gets to see them to assess them and how do they get to see a psychiatrist, if at all. To help us understand how the system works and whether our expectations are unrealistic to fit in with hospital protocol and reduce some of the frustrations we experience.

Liz, Karen and Judy gave an outline of the highlights of the BPD conference in Brisbane.
