Pandemic Fatigue

While we can all experience fatigue in different ways, it is possible to counter its effects. The Commission has developed resources to help you look out for some of the signs of fatigue, and shares steps you can take to be kind to yourself and overcome these feelings.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Pandemic Response Plan

The Commission welcomes the National Cabinet’s commitment to support and respond to the National Mental Health and Wellbeing Pandemic Response Plan. In May 2020, the Government made a commitment to support the National Mental Health and Wellbeing Pandemic Response Plan with $48.1 million in funding. The COVID-19 pandemic is posing significant health, lifestyle and economic challenges for Australians and evidence shows there is likely to be a significant negative mental health impact as a result. Australia’s mental health sector has been agile in responding to the increasing support needs of Australians with new opportunities including the expansion of digital services and telehealth as well as innovative community-based models of care. This plan prioritises the mental health of Australians in line with physical health and sets out a direction to help navigate through the pandemic.
