Take the first steps towards finding mental health and wellbeing support that is best for you

The sooner you talk about your mental health, the sooner you’ll get the help and support you need, to help you move forward and feel stronger.

You can call 1800 595 212, Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm (except public holidays) and a trained professional will take your call, give you advice, and if you need it connect you to the best support or service for you. 

This is not a crisis service. If you need immediate help or are at risk of harm to yourself or others call 000 now.
