Hi folks

Now that things have settled back into routine and some time has passed I thought it would be an appropriate time to re-share some of the really useful resources provided by the Department. Any changes in your child’s normal behaviours could be a sign that they need some extra help to cope with the events of the summer holidays.

Please don’t hesitate to get in contact to let us know if you and your child/ren need extra care or consideration.

The Federal Government’s bushfire initiative

The initiative offers mental health support for Australians affected by the 2019 to 2020 bushfires. Up to 10 sessions of counselling support through Medicare are available to those impacted by the bushfires. This is provided without the need for a mental health care plan or assessment by a GP.
