In the past few months, Australian Sickle Cell Advocacy Inc has focused on improving raising awareness in managing our mental health.
In the past few weeks, we have been meeting Haematologists from different states to confirm the need to include mental health checks in the care plans. We will also continue to remind everyone affected by sickle cell disease to ask for mental health referrals should they need help. In most States in Australia you have up to 10 free counselling sessions. Contact your Haematologist / GP for more details.
Hence in this view, we have partnered with Maryland Sickle Cell Disease Association to bring you an international women’s wellness conference concentrating on healing The Body, Mind, Soul and Finances.
