The Australian Government, through the Department of Health, has developed a new digital mental health gateway: Head to Health. Visit the website to access a range of telephone based and online mental health services. The services range from telephone and web counselling services, through to web-based treatment programs and peer support forums. The services are free of charge.
Head to Health can help you feel more in control of your mental health at a time and place convenient to you. For example, if you search for ‘anxiety’ you will be directed to more than 50 resources where you can choose the information, advice and services you are most comfortable with. You can also narrow the search to filter results more appropriate to your preferences, such as your age and population group (e.g. veteran, LGBTI). You may choose to use it for someone you care about.
