The Australian Mental Health Commission has launched a new initiative in response to the COVID-19 situation, as Australians are impacted by this challenging and unprecedented time. The #InThisTogether initiative is a national conversation that will help you access and share practical tips on how to support the mental health and wellbeing of yourself, family and co-workers. To join in this national conversation you can follow the hashtag #InThisTogether across social media, along with video segments providing advice and tips.
The Mental Health Commission website offers a range of further support materials and information, as well as social media tiles to help you and your department take part in the conversation.
We encourage you to check in with yourself and others during this challenging time, and seek support when you need it. If you need to talk, these free support lines are here to listen 24/7:
Lifeline 13 11 14
Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636
Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800
Or visit www.headtohealth.gov.au the digital mental health portal for more resources and support options.
