Resources for COVID-19

We know that many of us are feeling anxious or nervous with the latest developments around the COVID19 Pandemic. These feelings may also be felt by the people we are working with, some of which may find it difficult to understand what the virus is and how it may impact them and their family.

People First New Zealand Inc  have developed some really useful easy read resources which can be found here

We here at TalkLink have been on the hunt for useful links and practical resources that may be useful in teaching our clients and students on how to keep themselves and other safe during this time. We encourage you to share these resources freely with anyone you feel may find them useful. 

Disclaimer: If you are concerned about a person's well-being, please seek additional support as the ideas that are provided below are only a few guidelines and do not replace professional advice
