Just because we can’t be physically close to our family and friends, doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected.
During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are being asked to limit our contact with other people. This will prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and help save lives. Although this is hard for all of us, it’s the right thing to do.
We also know that feeling socially isolated can impact our health and mental wellbeing. It can make us feel sad, anxious, lonely and depressed. We want to make sure that during this time, you have ways to stay connected to your family, friends and community, even if you can’t see them in person.
This is why we have launched our new Stay Connected webpage, where you will find plenty of tips and resources for staying mentally and physically healthy, and staying connected while we are physically apart.
We are welcoming your ideas for things to add to the page, so please send your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (03) 6264 0300.
