The recent floods in the Riverland area may have impacted you and your community in many ways. It is natural to feel stress and grief when a disaster happens, such as a flood or extreme weather event. Some people recover without formal help while others need some extra support to get life back on track.
Seeking help from your family, friends, GP and other professional services is very important.
The Office of Chief Psychiatry has provided short-term funding to PEACE Multicultural Services to extend therapeutic support to multicultural communities, children and young people who have been impacted by the recent floods in the Riverland Region.
