Mental Health Services

The Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic has hit us all during a time when many Australians and Central Coast community members are recovering from the impact of recent bushfires, floods and water restrictions. The individual impacts we are feeling are wide ranging and far reaching.  It is a timely reminder that we are all human, we are all in this together and you are not alone. It is normal and natural to have a mix of emotions at this time, such as feeling anxious, worried, depressed, angry or psychically unwell due to stress. It’s OK to no feel OK.

Although we are required to physically distance ourselves from one another, it doesn’t mean that we should stop talking. Now more then ever, it’s important that Coasties band together to promote a sense of community and keep talking.

Whether you’re concerned about yourself or a loved one, these support services can offer expert advice:
