I had the pleasure to attend two free events on this lovely day. The first was to see Dami Im live at Westfield Chermside in front row seats. And the other is My Designer Wardrobe's Spring Fashion Shows founded by the lovely Stacey Peake. The venue is a beautiful bar and dining place with vintage-like lounges everywhere with dim lighting making it almost like it has a romantic feel to it. It was my first time to attend this bar and dining place.
There were two segments to the fashion shows.
Accessories and jewellery.
Zaria, my friend, and beautiful model.
Models waiting patiently for their next runway show.
Overall it has been an enjoyable night for me.
Mental Health Resources

1800 737 732 24/7 National Sexual Assault, Domestic Family Violence & Counselling Service. I have called this service several times for the rape trauma I faced in the past. This is a very wonderful service, and although I have only used the telephone counselling service several times, the qualified professionals were always very compassionate and helpful. It helps to have a pen and notebook ready before calling, as they tend to give good, practical tips on how to manage the problem you're having at the time. Highly recommend this service.
13 11 14 Lifeline - Available 24/7. I noticed the times I was in distress and called, the calls were confined to a maximum of half an hour or so. It's good to know someone who can listen. This is a free dial
Acute Care Team (24hr QLD Mental Health Support)
1300 642 255 (also known as 1300 MH CALL) - I use this service as an existing patient with the PAH Mental Health teams as I was an in-patient at the hospital. You have the option to speak with a Mental Health Clinician. I found the clinicians generally helpful. I have a long history with the hospital, and they can easily bring up my file - as long as I say who I am. Sometimes I use this line to check on my future appointments with the team.
