The great unknown: Tips for dealing with uncertainty
Uncertainty is a fact of life. But it’s now at levels that none of us could’ve expected. Lockdowns, social isolation, home schooling, (and curfews, in some places), are impacting everyone. It’s wearing and affecting our mental health.
We’ve brought together a panel of clinical experts to discuss how accessing the right tools can help us gain greater emotional wellbeing during this difficult time. They will detail the support services available, and explain how telehealth is helping to address some of the major healthcare issues facing Australians today.
