Mental Health During and After a Disaster or an Emergency

We are all susceptible to the effects of stress and grief during and after a disaster or an emergency, and sometimes we need extra help to cope.

For crisis mental health support, contact the Mental Health Triage Service on 13 14 65. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For free online and phone counselling support (24 hours a day, seven days a week), then contact Regional Access counselling service on 1300 032 186. It is available for anyone who lives or works in regional, rural or remote South Australia (e.g. outside of the Adelaide metropolitan region) and you do not need a referral. The Counselling service is free (local call charges may apply).
