Free stress and wellbeing training courses in Buller

Wellbeing representatives are concerned COVID-19 lockdown stresses on top of flooding issues are stretching Buller folk’s ability to manage.

West Coast DHB Director of Allied Health Jane George says the various organisations supporting the psychosocial and wellbeing of Kawatiri folk had noticed that the pressures of the COVID-19 Delta Level 4 lockdown on top of issues from the recent flooding were taking its toll.

“We’ve heard reports of people struggling, and these are folk who are usually more than capable of coping with things. Red Cross offers these great courses, and so we’ve organised a couple of half days coming up that might help give people a few strategies to get them through,” Ms George says.
