Our thoughts are with those affected by the floods along the east coast of Australia. If you have been directly affected you may be feeling distressed and overwhelmed so please reach out for support. Local authorities can point you in the right direction for emergency support such as the Red Cross and your State Emergency Service.
The aim is to ensure you are safe, have your urgent needs met, understand the current situation and are tapping into your strengths and coping skills to get you through.
Being socially connected to others is one of the best ways to cope through a natural disaster.
This forum is a space to freely share your feelings and experiences, and show support for your fellow community members who may also be affected.
