The impact of COVID-19 is taking its toll on our physical, financial and mental health. Understandably this time of our lives is quite stressful and can trigger feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. Uncertainty about how the virus will continue to spread and how long it will impact our way of life. The social distancing restrictions can leave many of us feeling alone and isolated, bored and frustrated, sad or even overwhelmed. Now more than ever, it is of vital importance we take care of ourselves, our friends and families, and our communities.
Psychology continues to be an essential service for many people. Fortunately the Australian Government has recognised the need for non face-to-face sessions (phone or video sessions called Telehealth) with psychologists to support the mental health of Australians at this unprecedented time. This means, with a referral from your G.P, you can access sessions from the comfort and safety of your home.
