Those affected by the recent bushfires can access free face-to-face counselling through the North Coast Primary Health Network by calling Healthy Minds on 1300 160 339 (new number) between 8:30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

If you need to talk to someone, you can call Lifeline anytime on 13 11 14.

If you’re concerned about your mental health, or someone else’s, you can call the Mental Health Hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 1800 011 511.​
