This month we celebrate @eth who has been doing a really great job with sharing their experience with the NDIS system. I know this scheme is a controversial one and hard to navigate but in sharing their own experiences it has been a helpful area for others to feel supported. @eth you have been fabulous in guiding people to that thread when a topic turns to the NDIS! 
*note to all: please always be aware that everyone will have different experiences. Comments on the system need to be done so respectfully to align with our guidelines - as has been done so far 👌🏼

quote.pngQuote of the month
What's helped has been being able to work through it in a space where people do have mutual respect for me and genuinely want to help support me to finding an understanding of myself --- my understanding of myself, not theirs. Such people can be hard to find, and did have to be looked for. But I have found them well worth the search. The experience of genuine mutual respect has been quite amazing after it had been compromised for so long. - a lovely quote from @Fredd50 said here (hopefully the forums are another area that genuine and respectful connections can be made!)
