Support for those impacted by adverse events
Whether you are directly or indirectly impacted by an adverse event, such as the recent floods, bushfires or novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it can bring about a range of stressful thoughts, feelings and behaviours for individuals.
The Life in Mind team at Everymind has worked with the suicide prevention and mental health sectors, and in collaboration with the National Mental Health Commission to provide a comprehensive list of resources to support those affected by adverse and traumatic events including floods, bushfires and COVID-19.
Have you been affected by COVID-19?
