As Australia works through the Coronavirus pandemic, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has issued a plea to residents to check in on the mental health of others.
“Some of us need extra support to keep our mental and emotional health on track,” she said.
“That’s why we’re allocating $28 million to community health services to support Queenslanders' mental health.”
Premier Palaszczuk said it was important to check in on neighbours, friends and family from afar.
“Just ask: Are you okay? How are you doing?,” she said.
“It's one small thing you can do that can make a big difference.”
Premier Palaszczuk has also reminded residents of assistance available for those looking for work.
“Many workers are doing it tough right now, so we want to connect them with industries experiencing demand,” she said.
“Jobs Finder Queensland is our new portal to help link Queenslanders who have lost their jobs with new opportunities.
“The portal includes access to free online training courses in a range of valuable skill sets in critical and in-demand industries.”
