Introduction

Our health and sense of well-being is strongly connected to where, and how, we live. 

The current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all in many ways.  Some of these are difficult, but some people have also noticed some positives.

We would like to know more about how social isolation and social distancing are affecting the well-being of people in the Wimmera and Southern Mallee.  Knowing more about this will help as we seek to find better ways to support people now and in the immediate future.   

You are the best source of information about the life your community.

We really appreciate you taking the time to answer a few questions.  It will make a very real difference. 

This survey is being conducted across Hindmarsh, Yarriambiack, West Wimmera Shires and Horsham Rural City by a community coalition made up of representatives of local governments, health services and agencies, education and volunteering organisations, and community representatives, with lead roles taken by the West Wimmera Health Service Health Promotion Team and LaTrobe University's School of Rural Health.

Best regards, 

Dorothy McLaren, Health Promotion Manager, West Wimmera Health Service.

Dr Sean MacDermott, Senior Lecturer, La Trobe University Rural Health School and John Richards Centre for Rural Ageing Research.
