The uncertainty of a pandemic can affect our mental health and we might feel stressed, anxious and worried in ways we haven’t before.
We know the steps we need to take to look after our physical health, but what about our mental health? It is important to look after yourself and your loved ones who are struggling.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ website outlines the steps you can take to feel less worried and help you stay positive. The page also offers advice on how to talk to children and elderly about the pandemic.
If you need to talk to someone about how you are doing, you can call Beyond Blue to speak to a trained counsellor on 1800 512 348.
