Head to Health can help you with digital mental health and wellbeing resources

Head to Health has been developed to support the mental health of people in NSW. Head to Health is available to everyone in NSW. It’s for all ages, genders and cultural backgrounds. It is a free service, funded by the Australian Government. 

If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, isolation, loneliness or burn-out because of the current pandemic, financial pressures or any other reason now is the time to reach out, even if you’ve never felt like this or asked for help before.

If you may have recognised a change in behaviour in someone around you, or you are aware of someone who has a clinically diagnosed mental health condition you can also suggest help. 

Head to Health services can help you, and the people you care about, find the right mental health services. You can get help support by calling 1800 595 212, Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm (except public holidays). 

Referrals from GPs and other mental health providers are encouraged to contact Head to Health too. 

When you call or visit a Head to Health service, you will speak to a trained professional who will ask you a series of questions to determine the level of care you need. This health professional has access to a wide range of services and can match you to the best solution for your care needs. 

You will be guided through any referral processes to ensure you are well informed and not left behind. About a week later, your Head To Health contact will check-in with you to ensure you are happy with your treatment.  

Sometimes finding the support you need can seem overwhelming. Rather than jumping straight into a service that might not suit you, it can be helpful to talk to someone who can guide you to the right service for you. Head to Health can also provide services onsite at pop up locations for those who need it, as well as telehealth services.
