For families to help manage the mental health and wellbeing impact of the cyclone
Cyclone Seroja may have had a significant impact on some children, young people and their families who have experienced either direct or indirect exposure. Different people may experience it in different ways.
Children and young people can develop trauma-related mental health and wellbeing issues even when not directly exposed to the cyclone.
We have collated resources to help you find information on supporting your children.
