Mental health support - COVID-19

It’s normal to feel stress and worry when there is a health event happening in the community that is affecting people’s wellbeing, such as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

This can affect people through isolation from loved ones and usual supports, changes to normal daily routines, changes to or loss of work, difficult financial situations, as well as anxiety about becoming unwell.

To support the mental health of South Australians during this time SA Health have established a  Mental Health Support Network of services based locally in SA. This page provides information about the services and other resources for mental health support during this challenging time.

If you are in self-isolation or quarantine, see the Mental Health information for people in home isolation fact sheet (PDF 325KB) for information and support services.
