Psychosocial Support

With the recent floods, it is understandable if you are feeling concerned and experiencing a mix of strong emotions or physical reactions right now.

For those who have faced flooding before, this might be a particularly challenging time that is stirring up memories and feelings of sadness, fear, and grief.

It’s important to remember that recovery is a personal journey, and everyone experiences things differently. For some people, recovery is ongoing.

Remember, experiencing these emotions is a normal response to such events, but these concerns may lead to other issues if they are not managed.

If you find yourself experiencing strong emotions, remember that talking about your worries and feelings as well as remaining connected to others can make them more manageable. It is important to identify what actions can be taken to address the source of your concerns. Be aware of the signs that you might need some extra support and get help if you need it.

Seeking help is a sign of strength and often the first step in recovery.

Remember, you are not alone in this. If you are feeling overwhelmed or concerned about your mental health, or that of someone close to you, don’t hesitate to reach out for support by talking to:

  • neighbours, friends or family
  • your doctor
  • Lifeline on 131114 or Beyond Blue on 1300 224 636
