It is estimated that road crashes cost Australia $27 billion every year. Since record keeping started in 1925, there have been more than 189,000 road deaths in Australia.

During the ‘silly season’ most people will consider their alcohol consumption and how it may affect their driving. However, many people don’t realise that medicines can also affect driving. We all know alcohol can slow our reflexes, but many medicines can do this too.

Other risks include fines, property damage, and loss of licence, or even time in jail. Read More >

A traumatic experience is any event in life that causes a threat to our safety and potentially places our own life or the lives of others at risk. As a result, a person experiences high levels of emotional, psychological, and physical distress that temporarily disrupts their ability to function normally in day-to-day life. Read More >
