New caravan allows counselling services to continue

Mental health support rolls into Goonellabah

Like many homes and businesses in Lismore, our head office and community hub were completely inundated by flood waters and we were forced to relocate to temporary premises in Goonellabah.

Throughout this difficulty, we remain committed to the continued support of vulnerable people in Lismore and throughout Northern NSW, many of whom are experiencing additional trauma from displacement, hardship and grief.

So it was a wonderful surprise this week when Fiona and Norm from TripADeal in Byron Bay offered to lend us a caravan so that we can continue our trauma counselling services. With this caravan we are continuing to provide safe, confidential, face-to-face counselling in Goonellabah to people who are suffering the effects of trauma.

For people who can’t travel to the Lismore area, we will continue to provide zoom counselling services as well.

Our temporary premises and counselling caravan are located at 10 Centenary Drive, Goonellabah.

Access our free counselling services by calling 02 6621 7397 or emailing hub@nrcg.org.au. Bookings are essential.
