Disasters and mental health support

If you are affected by the River Murray flood and require mental health support, visit the River Murray Flood Mental Health Support web page.

After a disaster, it’s common to feel stress and grief. This can include a range of thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Every year, Australian communities face the devastating effects of disasters such as bushfires, floods, storms, drought, other extreme weather events, pandemics, community violence and other major incidents.

These can have a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of communities, the economy, local infrastructure and the environment.

This site provides access to mental health information to assist with supporting people and communities at risk of, or affected by, disasters. It aims to ensure services and communities are well prepared and understand how to access mental health supports quickly.
