Coronavirus (COVID-19) mental health resources

 

In the early stages of an emerging infectious disease outbreak such as the coronavirus (COVID-19), there is frequently a great deal of uncertainty about the nature of the disease, its spread, and its scope and impact. This may lead to significant and understandable emotional distress, even among those who have not been directly exposed to the disease. 

 

We have developed some useful tip sheets to support health practitioners and community members after the spread of the virus.

 

Please note: Phoenix Australia does not provide direct clinical care or referral services. To stay up-to-date about developments related to the infectious disease outbreak you can call the Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.
