  • RE: Help with groups!

    Hi Emma, It looks like you have created a small group for MDWA - you can use this as a place to post messages to each other that only the three of you can see depending on the privacy settings of your group.

  • RE: Just a question. How do the tags and subcategories work?

    Sorry for the delay on following up. Palliative Care is a subcategory of Wellness. I created a new subcategory called Mental Health. Now I know how to add them if there's any you'd like to see, let me know.

  • You Can't Ask That! - Call out for questions

    MDFA/The Loop are producing a series of videos for The Loop, a couple of which will be in the style of ABC TV's "You Can't Ask That".

    The videos will be broadly focused on feelings of vulnerability and keeping connected, but we're hoping to cover lots of ground.

    We'd love your input - so what are some of the annoying questions people ask you all the time?

    Share your questions in the comments and keep an eye out for the videos - coming to The Loop later in 2020!
