Call 1800 595 212

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).
