COVID-19 Update & Resources

Out of concern for the safety of the Ocean Mind family, we have decided to cancel all programs and surf clubs for the time being. At this stage, the Ocean Mind team is working out a plan to continue to support our whole community, to keep us all connected even though we are apart.

There is a lot of fear and uncertainty right now and a lot of people are isolated, so looking after our mental health is more important than ever. Here are a list of useful websites and phone numbers to contact should you need support for your mental health and wellbeing.

The Ocean Mind staff team are still available by phone or email throughout this period.
