West Gippsland Libraries have partnered with registered Counselling psychologist Alison Fonseca to provide a mini-series called Looking After Your Mental Health. This 5-part series covers a range of topics and we’ll share a new video each month.
In our first video, our Deputy CEO Linda asks Alison for tips on how to know if you or those around you are not coping, and if we should treat our mental health in the same way that we treat physical fitness.
Audio captions are available for this video. Simply tap on the video and click the ‘CC’ symbol on the video to switch them on.
