‘Head to Health’: Australia’s new digital mental health gateway now live
Head to Health is an essential tool for the one in five working age Australians who will experience a mental illness each year. The website helps people take control of their mental health in a way they are most comfortable with and can complement face-to-face therapies, as evidence shows that for many people, digital interventions can be as effective as face-to-face services.
Head to Health provides a one-stop shop for services and resources delivered by some of Australia’s most trusted mental health service providers; including free or low-cost apps, online support communities, online courses and phone services. The site will continue to grow with additional services, a telephone support service to support website users, and further support for health professionals to meet the needs of their patients.
