Getting support

Sometimes as much as we try to help ourselves, we may need some extra support particularly during a global pandemic!

It’s okay to seek out help when needed.

It’s important to keep yourself healthy so you can help your family stay healthy.

We are all in this together- so stay strong mob!

If you don’t have people or support systems around you that are safe or accessible, reach out and make contact with local services in your community, such as:

  • your doctor
  • Aboriginal medical service
  • counsellor
  • women or men’s health centre
  • neighbourhood centre
  • place of worship,
  • sports club
  • and other places of support.

Otherwise if you need to talk to someone, try the following:
