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.
