Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Local support services

The Victorian Government has partnered with local councils to deliver the Community Activation and Social Isolation (CASI) initiative.

The service provides direction and helps people who might be feeling alone or people who have lost their regular networks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To access streamlined support people can now phone the Victorian Government COVID-19 hotline on 1800 675 398 and press 3 to speak to an Australian Red Cross volunteer.

For callers requiring localised support, they will then be linked with a local community connector within Mitchell Shire Council who can arrange help and services.

Alternatively, you can contact the providers directly on the information below.

Together we can work through this COVID-19 pandemic.

For mental health and wellbeing information, please contact Beyond Blue.

For 24-7 support if you are experiencing a personal crisis or have suicidal thoughts, please contact LifeLine.

For phone and online counselling for young people aged 5 to 25, contact Kids Help Line.
