Mental health

We know that our mental health is a crucial part of our overall wellbeing and during this very challenging time you may feel lonely, anxious or apathetic.
To help you get back on track and find some zen, we’ve dedicated this section of the pantry to all things mental wellness.

Before we continue; if you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by sadness, depression, loneliness or anxiety then you should consider speaking to a mental health professional, many psychologists are able to conduct appointments over the phone. Alternatively, you can call Lifeline for 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention service.

*To be absolutely clear, no part of this content should take the place of advice from a mental health professional.
