Bushfires – Don’t forget the Children

25 Jan 2020

Thousands of children across Australia have been impacted by the devasting Bushfires we have and are still experiencing this summer.  Either from under direct threat of losing their homes, impacted by severe smoke, images they have seen on TV, where their parents volunteer or work on the front as a fire fighter.

In some cases children will present as being unaffected but the trauma can resurface even months down the track. It is important that we provide children with a way to express their feelings by helping them process and make sense of what is happening to them so they do not develop long term mental issues from this frightening and devastating event in their life.

If you are worried that your child/children is/are not coping and needs additional support please either contact your doctor or call Be Centre on 02 99137000.
