Taking care of your mental and physical health during bushfires

Taking care of your mental and physical health during bushfires
If you’re affected by the recent bushfires in Northern NSW, there are things you can do to take care of your physical and mental health.

Fine particles from bushfire smoke can affect heart and respiratory systems, and aggravate existing chronic health conditions. For information about the health effects of bushfire smoke and how to protect yourself, view the advice from the North Coast Public Health Unit.

Looking after your mental health is important, and extreme weather events and natural disasters can have a big impact on those affected. On our website you can find more information about who to call and what services are available.

In an emergency, always call triple zero (000).
