MP's message to think about and talk with others

"We all play a part in ensuring everyone in our community is heard, supported and loved."

That was the message from Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch on September 9, RUOK Day

"The lockdown has only exacerbated the insidiously invisible mental health challenges the community faces, with isolation messaging only adding to their personal challenges," she said.

"While keeping socially distanced is crucial to fighting the pandemic, it does not prevent the community from reaching out to each other and being a collective, rather than individuals living in the same place.

"The key is thinking about others and communicating with others.

"People you know, mere acquaintances and strangers are all going through a extremely difficult time and the opportunity for you to provide happiness in their lives and make them feel a part of a collective, rather than alone, is important.

"The community aspect of our lives is something we are all capable of encouraging and facilitating.

"It goes without saying every day it is important to ask how someone is going.

"We have the potential to make an impact on someone's life every day and we should take every opportunity we get to do this."

"Kindness is priceless," she said.
