Looking after yourself after a disclosure

Having a staff member or colleague talk about family violence can be uncomfortable, distressing or traumatising, whether or not you have been impacted by family violence

It’s important to be aware of how you may be affected and understand that it’s that an emotional response is also a human one and both normal and common.

If you are distressed in any way, you are encouraged to seek assistance from your Employee Assistance Program, 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732) or another mental health service provider.
