Many NSW communities have experienced repeated and regular flooding over the past few years, causing damage to homes, infrastructure, and livelihoods. There is a growing awareness that natural disasters such as floods can affect people’s mental health both short- and long-term.
To better understand your mental health needs following natural disasters, we ask that a member of your ACCHO team complete the survey: Mental Health Support for Flood Affected Communities.
Upon submission of your survey response, the AH&MRC will be granting each member service the opportunity to attend the Indigenous Health Summit held at the Sydney International Convention Centre (4th-6th March, 2024) free of charge, which will include travel and accommodation costs (up to the value of $3000 per service) reimbursed.
The AH&MRC’s Indigenous Health Summit is a great opportunity to collaborate with your peers from the Aboriginal Community Controlled Sector, and other health partners, as we work towards innovative and sustainable activities to promote and support mental health services in communities.
Find attached the provisional program for the summit here.
Please submit the survey by COB 9th February 2024.
