Feeling overwhelmed or upset by the news of a hard Victorian lockdown? We are too.
2021 is off to an interesting start. With a steady easing of restrictions those of us in Melbourne started to experience a new COVID normal, with so much valued freedom. So, the news today that we are going back into a hard lockdown at midnight can be hard to process.
For those of us living with complex mental health issues or with a history of trauma, the suddenness of this lockdown could be a trigger for mental health symptoms and high distress.
It’s really important we take care of ourselves during this lockdown, and the first step is to acknowledge whatever we may feel in response, it’s valid.
