Wellbeing: Being involved in a bushfire emergency can be sudden and overwhelming. It is normal for people to feel unsettled and disrupted for a while. In most cases there are no signs of physical injury, but there can be an emotional impact. If you notice symptoms like depression, anxiety, sadness, anger, fatigue, nightmares and difficulty concentrating that linger a few weeks from now, it is important to seek help from a counsellor or your doctor.
