Wellbeing

Due to circumstances outside our control, we may be finding things a little challenging at the moment.  Our emotional brain may be on overload and we may be struggling to move into our thinking brain.

At this time we need to actively consider our wellbeing and do things that support us to return to our thinking brain.

There are a number of supports available for adults and young people to support wellbeing.
