New Head to Health pop ups support people struggling with their mental health

Popup_Head_to_Health_Social_Tiles3GPs are encouraged to refer patients who may be struggling with their mental health during the COVID-19 lockdowns, to the new Head to Health pop up service.

To access Head to Health, patients can call 1800 595 212 to discuss their needs and concerns with a trained intake worker. They will then be directed to mental health services in their area which most appropriately meet their individual needs. In some cases, this may include a face-to-face or telehealth appointment at one of two Head to Health hubs established in South Western Sydney.

South Western Sydney PHN (SWSPHN) has commissioned the service with a share of $10.6 million in funding from the Federal Government.

Head to Health opened on Monday, 6 September 2021.

Head to Health support is available to anyone of any age in the community with or without a referral or GP mental health treatment plan.

If you or your patients have questions about the service, please download the Head To Health Consumer FAQs.
