Murray PHN resources
Murray PHN has created social media campaigns to support our partners and commissioned service providers. We hope that these tools - images, animations (GIF and MP4 video formats) and suggested messages for accompanying posts - will help your health service.
We believe they will raise awareness with patients and followers that you are still caring for and supporting your patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find and share some of this messaging on Murray PHN's social media pages: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube or download them below.
If you experience any issues, would like more information, or have ideas for another campaign that would assist your primary care service, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Mental wellness campaign – Make some time for mindful activities
Medical experts are warning that the impact of COVID-19 may lead to an increase in mental health issues, including anxiety, depression and even suicide.
Murray PHN has created the “Make some time” mindfulness campaign to encourage people to practice simple first steps in managing their mental health. These messages are made even more powerful when circulated by a trusted primary health care provider who can offer a wide range of services.
