It’s normal to feel stress and worry when there is a health event, like COVID-19, happening in the community.
This can affect any person who is concerned about the infection, with more specific concerns arising for those being tested, those in quarantine and those who have received a diagnosis.
Most people will manage with the support of family and friends, but others may need some extra help to keep things on track.
South Australians who are feeling overwhelmed, distressed or needing some additional mental health support in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic can now call the SA COVID-19 Mental Health Support Line on 1800 632 753 that includes support over phone and video, and a call-back service.
