BUSHFIRE RELIEF

Bush Fires have a different impact from one person to the next and the time it takes to feel safe again varies between people. It is not only the survivors of traumatic events that are affected, but also people who are helpers, rescuers and people who have worked with survivors or the grieving.  HealthWISE provides psychological support for people whose lives have been directly impacted by Bush Fires and are experiencing difficulties adjusting.

This service is offered to communities in the New England and North West of NSW.
