    Partners Group: Online Meeting
    Topic: Self Care


    About our Partners Group

    Join our Partners Peer Support Group to meet other adults who are or who have been in a relationship with someone who has Aspergers, is autistic, or has a similar neurodivergent profile. Sharing experiences within the safe environment of our peer support meetings can be a lifeline, and sharing with people who have similar lived experience is validating and often educational. Your partner may be self-diagnosed or have a formal diagnosis, and you may share a household or live separately. We are an inclusive group and welcome partners of all genders and relationship types.


    This month, we will be talking about self care. Everyone can benefit from self care: what is self care for me?


    This session is facilitated by our Partners Group Leaders. All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees.


    Cost: $5 for members, $10 for non-members. FREE for holders of a +Groups Membership.

      What is Discord?

      Discord is a free voice, video and text chat app for teens and adults aged 13 and over. Teens can access Discord via their computer or smart phone. Using Discord, they can join servers they have been invited to, create private servers with their friends, or message each other individually or in group chats. We suggest reading the Parents' Guide to Discord Blog before joining for the first time.


      Is it safe for our teens to use?

      Yes. Aspergers Victoria have created a dedicated, secure server for our Teens group. Only registered participants can access the AV Teens Discord server, and the link changes monthly for security. Our moderators have the list of registered teens and will only allow them to be online during the meeting.
