As the end of this financial year approaches, we reflect on how challenging the last few months have been.
Like most people, you may have been affected in some way, and we sincerely hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.
While the focus has been on physical health, the impact on mental health has been alarming as well.
Isolation, social distancing, unemployment, and fear have created a difficult environment. Unfortunately, many people have turned to alcohol and/or other drugs to cope. This unhealthy coping mechanism can trigger a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, domestic violence, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, crime, self-harm, and even suicide.
