Keeping our mob safe – Help for mental health and financial support

Coronavirus has changed the way we live and connect with people for now. Change can be hard. Many people are having problems, both financially and mentally. During times like this, it is important to know where you can get help.

Social and emotional wellbeing support services

With big changes in our lives, it is normal to feel worried, stressed, sad, tired or angry. Talking with family, friends, or someone you trust can help. You can also talk with an Aboriginal health worker or your GP.

There are a range of services to help people who are feeling upset or worried. Don’t hesitate to ask for support when needed and look out for others that you think might need help.
