How to seek Mental Health Support
If you or someone you know requires immediate help or medical attention, please call 000. If you have suicidal or harmful thoughts please contact emergency services on 000 or Accessline on 1800 011 511.
People often don’t know where to start to get the mental health services they need. Seeking help is often the first step towards getting and staying well, but it can be hard to know how to start or where to turn. It's common to feel unsure and to wonder whether you should try to handle things on your own.
It is always ok to ask for help – even if you're not sure you are experiencing a specific mental health problem.
You might want to seek help if you're:
worrying more than usual
finding it hard to enjoy your life
having thoughts and feelings that are difficult to cope with, which have an impact on your day-to-day life
worried about someone that you live with or care for
If you feel you might need help, or just to talk, our doctors are skilled at managing mental health problems for all ages. If you or someone you know is suffering from mental unwellness or illness please contact us or phone Accessline on 1800 011 511.
