As with all natural disasters, the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) and it’s Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP) is responding to the March 2021 flood crisis in NSW.
Natural disasters can have a big impact on those affected. The floods in NSW are ongoing and while physical safety is the priority, there are things you can do to take care of yourself and your mental health, particularly after the immediate threat of danger has passed. You may start to notice your mental health and wellbeing has been affected.
As with all natural disasters, rural communities will need continued support to sustain mental wellbeing and to prevent mental health problems developing. The CRRMH is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of flood-affected communities.
