Head to Health Pop Up
Head to Health Pop Up services have been developed to support the mental health of people in NSW, of all ages, struggling during extended lockdown. If your mental health is suffering because of the current pandemic, now is the time to reach out, even if you’ve never felt like this or asked for help before.
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.
Head to Health has been designed to provide mental health support to those in need during the extended lockdown in NSW. A trained mental health professional will take your call, give you advice, and if you need it connect you to the best support or service for you.
You can call 1800 595 212 Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm (except public holidays).
This is not a crisis service. If you need immediate help or are at risk of harm to yourself or others call 000 now.
COVID-19 is having a significant impact on our lives and many of us have had to make changes to stop the spread and keep our loved ones and community safe. Some of these changes, such as physical distancing, staying at home and limiting travel, have made many people feel isolated or lonely.
You may be having trouble sleeping, feeling anxious or stressed, experiencing mood changes, low energy levels or worrying about the future. Many people are having similar feelings, and you are not alone. If you’re not feeling like yourself, there are things you can do to feel better like:
- Keep in touch with family and friends – on the phone or using video chat if you can’t get together. Talking to people about how you are feeling can help you feel better
- Get enough sleep – sleep will help your body recharge and manage stress better
- Eat well and stay active – eating healthy foods and exercising is good for mental and physical health.
- Create a routine that works for you – plan your day and have regular sleep and mealtimes.
When you’re feeling off, it is important you know where to go for help. The Australian Government’s Head to Health website has information and resources from trusted mental health organisations.
You can access a range of phone and online mental health services or find out more information about how to keep well.
