Sleep Support Sessions


Join us for our Sleep Support and Relaxation Sessions at Borderlands. These sessions will be facilitated by the Recovery Coordinators from Hope: Asylum Seekers and Refugees Trauma Service who will share skills on how to relax and prepare for sleep.

What happens in these sessions?

In these sessions the facilitators will identify the problems you have with your sleep and will give you tips on what you should do or not before going to bed

It will also be a space where you can relax and disconnect through breathing activities, muscle relaxation exercises, and art making.

We will also give you a package to take home with lavender balm, relaxing tea and an anti-stress ball. Our facilitators will advise you on different relaxation techniques that you can do at home.
