Support for Bushfire affected communities

Posted January 07 2020

The stress of experiencing something such as a bushfire can leave people at a higher risk of developing depression or anxiety, even if they are not directly dealing with loss of property and/or possessions.

If you live in the New England, North West or Mid-Coast regions and have been affected by the bushfires, you can access free mental health coaching via the bushfire wellbeing coaching line.
