Some people have welcomed the time to themselves, with fewer of the daily stresses of life, but for many of us the rules and restrictions have brought unwelcome changes: unemployment, disrupted study, social isolation, difficulty accessing essential services, increased worries. Some of these changes may well have made a lot of difference to our mental and physical health and well-being.
Central Highlands Rural Health (CHRH) is conducting a survey to learn more about the impacts of COVID-19 on people across our community. Please fill in the survey HERE
The survey asks us to compare our physical, social and emotional circumstances before and during COVID-19. How has it affected your relationships? Your physical activity? Your place in your community? What things have been helpful to maintaining connections to other people and to services? What things have been barriers?
There is also an opportunity to write about how you see the pandemic affecting yourself, your family and our community in general. And to fess up (anonymously) to how well you have been following the rules and restrictions.
CHRH will use the information to adapt their services to meet the changes in the community’s needs.
If you are aged 18 years and over, CHRH would really appreciate your input. Take the time to complete this survey by August 15.
