With March coming to a close and the beginning, for many, of an indeterminate amount of time in isolation, there's an energy in the air that's almost palpable as we are beginning to adjust to our new, temporary way of life. There’s a massive shift in gear and with that, it’s very easy to get caught up. Being in isolation for many of us is new, uncharted territory. How do we adjust?
Taking a deep breath and assessing how you are should take a higher precedence than it does. It’s a known fact that 1 in 5 Aussie’s is living with a mental health issue and many of these people are without adequate access to services and help. This statistic is staggering especially considering the plethora of platforms readily available to offer a helping hand should you need it. This is in no small part due to the lack of awareness. Mental health is still somewhat taboo, and openly talking about your feelings is not something that is encouraged in our day-to-day environments. MISTR thinks this is BS. We have complied a list of our top picks for places anyone can go to seek some help or to talk.
