Supporting Carers during Covid19

Everymind and Roses in the Ocean have come together to produce a series of short videos to support those in our communities who are caring for loved ones experiencing emotional distress due to mental ill health  and /or suicidal crisis.  The videos will capture carers sharing their thoughts and ideas to support other carers.

A group of carers came together via video conferencing last week to identify key questions for other carers to answer that will provide useful support and insight for others.

We are now reaching out to anyone who has been or currently is caring for a loved one through emotional distress, who would like to contribute to these videos.  We are not expecting high quality, professional video at this time – simply a video taken with your phone of you answering one or more of the questions . . . sharing your valuable insights from your lived experience.

If you’re keen to be part of this project, please follow the links below

Once you have recorded your answers to the questions please send your video and completed consent form to Crystal Hatchard, Communications Officer Crystal.Hatchard@health.nsw.gov.au. We recommend sending your completed video/s via an online file sharing tool. Our preferred tool is Dropbox. (Please contact the team for use of alternative tools.) Once uploaded, please share access with Crystal. Should you experience any difficulties, please send an email to the above address.
