Our Stories is a research report examining the lived experiences of people who have been impacted by natural disasters. The research focuses on two events in particular: 2019/2020 NSW bushfires and 2019 QLD monsoon events. The aim is to create an agreed, coordinated approach between levels of government to respond to psychosocial and mental health needs in the context of natural disasters; identify responses at individual, family and community levels and grapple with current problems and challenges while highlighting potential solutions.
