The COVID-19 pandemic and the related social and economic impacts of physical distancing and isolation measures have had a significant impact on the mental health and wellbeing of all Australians, with particular challenges faced by multicultural communities.
The Australian Government’s COVID-19 Mental Health Campaign (the Campaign) has been launched to encourage people to prioritise their mental health, learn how to know the signs of someone not coping, and provide information on the support services available.
You can now access the following resources in multiple languages that can help you talk to your community, including:
- A stakeholder toolkit with campaign information, social media images and copy, newsletter and web text
- Multilingual factsheets:
- Signs and symptoms
- Looking after your mental health and wellbeing
- Where to go for help and support
- Dedicated pages for culturally and linguistically diverse communities on the Head to Heath website https://www.health.gov.au/COVID-translated-mental-health
