The recent bushfires in Australia have impacted people in many different ways. Even those who are not in bushfire affected areas are experiencing the ongoing physical and mental health effects of smoke, changes in weather, the loss of the natural environment and many other issues.   During these times, it is important to look after your own mental health and to reach out to those in your community who may also be affected. Looking after your mental health and reaching out to your community is important for your wellbeing. If you are looking for further information on the impact of bushfires on mental health, the following resources are available in a number of languages to assist you and your community: Family help kit - post traumatic stress factsheet Revised in August of 2019, Transcultural Mental Health Centre

1 in 5 Australians are affected by mental illness, yet many don't seek help because of stigma. We can all do something to help shed a more positive light on mental health. World Mental Health Day – October 10 — is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy. It is an initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health to raise public awareness of mental health issues worldwide. Mental Health Australia leads the World Mental Health Day campaign in Australia. This year, the Australian World Mental Health Day campaign is called Do You See What I See?. This campaign challenges perceptions about mental illness in Australia and encourages everyone to look at mental health in a more positive light, in an effort to reduce stigma and make way for more people to seek the help and support they deserve.
