  4. Don’t use smoking, alcohol or other drugs to deal with your emotions.
  5. If you feel overwhelmed, talk to a health worker or counsellor*. Have a plan, where to go to and how to seek help for physical and mental health needs if required.   

*You can call us on (02) 9211 9988 to arrange an appointment to talk to one of our counsellors.

  1. Get the facts. Gather information that will help you accurately determine your risk so that you can take reasonable precautions. Find a credible source you can trust such as WHO website or, a local or state public health agency.
  2. Limit worry and agitation by lessening the time you and your family spend watching or listening to media coverage that you perceive as upsetting.
  3. Draw on skills you have used in the past that have helped you to manage previous life’s adversities and use those skills to help you manage your emotions during the challenging time of this outbreak.
