What is NewAccess Coaching?
Developed by beyondblue, NewAccess is a free confidential coaching service aimed at assisting people who are not currently accessing a mental health service but may be experiencing anxiety and/or depression. Coaches can work with people who may be feeling unhappy, angry, stressed or unable to concentrate due to life pressures such as:
- Change in living arrangements.
- New parent worries.
- Family problems.
- Health concerns or uncertainty.
- Long-term isolation or loneliness.
- Financial worries or instability.
- Work stress or uncertainty.
At the first appointment a coach will work with each individual to identify needs, set practical goals and develop a tailored program.
Life can get tough sometimes, but there are ways for you to get back on track. Here are some stories from people who’ve used our NewAccess program.
