Head to Health is a free confidential service from the Australian government which connects to with the help and support you need to keep mentally healthy. As a provider of Head to Health services, Family Services Australia offer face-to-face and telehealth-based mental health supports to consumers across the South East NSW Primary Health Network catchment area.
Head to Health centres and Pop Up clinics provide free and immediate mental health support for people in distress or crisis, and short to medium-term mental health care for people who need it. Head to Health staff will talk with you about your individual concerns to identify the support you need. This may involve receiving mental health care from a Head to Health centre or Pop Up clinic or referring you to other services and supports available in your region. Head to Health takes a broad approach when considering your circumstances, mental health and wellbeing, recognising that there are many factors that can have a negative impact on someone’s wellbeing. Whether you have experienced mental ill-health in the past, or if this is the first time you have reached out for support, Head to Health is here to help.
