A lot has happened over the past year, and we know it hasn’t been easy, particularly with COVID-19 impacting all the ups and downs of recovery.
As we reach anniversaries that are meaningful to each of us, there may be painful memories and difficult days for many.
Through the devastation, seeing our community throughout the year, and the way people have banded together during such a tough time has been inspiring.
The holiday season can be a difficult time for some people, and this year may be particularly tough. There is no right or wrong way to feel, and people can respond to the same event in very different ways.
There’s lots of advice around, about the kind of things that can help if you’re not feeling like your usual self like getting plenty of sleep and exercise, talking to friends and family, and making time to do something you enjoy each day.
In consultation with the National Bushfire Recovery Agency, NSW Resilience, Coordinare, and the Shoalhaven Health and Wellbeing Network, Council has developed this information sheet that we hope provides some reference and contact points for the community who may need more support.
