Looking after mental health 
Due to the uncertainty of this pandemic, the risk of increased anxiety for you, your family, and community members, is high. Living in self-isolation can also increase feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression. 
Here are some resources in relation to looking after your mental health during this period.

Dingley Village Community Response
We have commenced a volunteer program with local churches, community groups and residents, aiming to buddy up residents who have minimal or no support, with volunteers who will keep in contact and provide help where appropriate.
If you are worried about a neighbour, please knock on their door and ask if they are OK, if you prefer contact the Neighbourhood Centre and pass on their name and address, we will then make initial contact. If you would like to help local residents please do not hesitate to contact us  admin@dvnc.com.au or 9558 1866. 
Ten ways to reduce the risk of coronavirus 
• Wash hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry with paper towel or hand dryer. 
• Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth. 
• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. 
• Isolate yourself at home if you feel sick. If you take medication, ensure you have adequate supplies. 
• Phone your GP first if you need medical attention. They will tell you what to do. 
• Continue healthy habits: exercise, drink water, get plenty of sleep, and now is the time to quit smoking. Call the Quitline 137 848.
• Don't wear a face mask if you are well. 
• Buy an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with over 60 per cent alcohol. 
• Get the flu shot (available April). 
• Avoid all forms of physical contact including shaking hands and hugs and practice social distancing
