In 2021, a series of morning teas aimed at highlighting adoptee mental health were held during Qld Mental Health Week, under the banner of AdopTEA. All up, four peer-supported gatherings of adopted people were registered across Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and regional Queensland. This year, the AdopTEA events will again take place again during Qld Mental Health Week running from 8 – 16th October. The AdopTEA events increase awareness and understanding of the impacts of adoption on adopted people and reduce the stigma associated with reaching out and seeking support. In this episode we are joined by the creator of AdopTEA, Judy Glover.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and the many lands that our clients now live on and we wish to acknowledge and show our respects to Elders past and present for their continuing connection to culture and the contributions they make to community. We acknowledge how much we have to learn from them and their unique understanding of connection and adoption and their recognition that at the base of every change is truth telling and healing.
