The Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health Facebook page is for people to find out more about the services we offer, events we or our colleagues in the sector are running, as well sharing information about important health issues. We also share information about job vacancies available at the organisation.

Our administrators will remove any posts which:

  • Are likely to be offensive to other readers including use of homophobic language or transphobic or personal attacks on others
  • Discuss methods of suicide or self-harm
  • Discuss drug usage in a glorified way e.g. omitting the negative effects
  • Are racist, sexist or discriminatory
  • Are obscene or use graphic sexual language
  • Are defamatory or overly critical of services or organisations which provide help to others
  • Are abusive, a personal attack, or reveal personal information about clients, staff or community members
  • For any other reason are likely to cause harm/distress to other people reading the story
  • Are in violation of any law, regulation, or third party’s rights
  • Encourage illegal or inappropriate activity
  • Are posted for commercial purposes
  • Promote inaccurate, inappropriate or harmful health advice
  • Off topic comments or spam

Our administrators reserve the right to remove posts promoting organisations, products, services, events or competitions.

In certain circumstances, if a post raises concerns about your safety, we may try to contact you to check that you and/or others are safe.  If there are significant concerns, we may need to pass on your contact information to authorities who can help protect you and/or others, such as a crisis service or the police.  Our preferred way to do this would be to support you to seek help.

We are obliged to try to protect you and/or others if the information you submit tells us that:

  • You are being seriously hurt by someone else
  • You are thinking of seriously harming yourself, or
  • Someone else is being, or is likely to be, seriously hurt by you or another person

Our Facebook page cannot provide specific counselling, crisis services or support.  If you need immediate assistance please call Lifeline on 13 11 14.

This page is only monitored during business hours.  Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health takes no responsibility for comments on the Facebook page, or any interactions others may have on or off this Facebook page.

If you have a specific issue that you would like to discuss with us, feedback or complaints can be sent confidentially to feedback@scchc.org.au.
