The past two years have been very stressful for many people across our community, including our children and youth.

A national partnership of child health services has now put together a Toolkit for adults to help them support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of infants and children through the different stages of a disaster or traumatic event.

The free, evidence-based Toolkit provides a series of resources and education materials, including a section especially for parents and carers.

Other sections are provided for different users: GPs, health and social services workers, first responders, and educators.

The Community Trauma Toolkit can be found online at the Emerging Minds website, available by clicking the green button below.
