Recovery is different for each person. Recovering from a traumatic event such as a bush fire can take many forms and much time. The experience and impact.

Recovery is not just about the practical aspects of your life – relocating, building a home and replacing items – it is also about the psychological and emotional aspects.

The recovery phase can be a highly unsettling time. Reaching out to family, friends and organisations for support is very important, especially if you are grieving, feeling isolated or anxious or needing living or financial help.
