HEAD TO HEALTH

In times of uncertainty it's normal to feel a range of emotions including increased stress and anxiety. While these feelings are normal, we need to ensure that in times of crisis we take steps to look after our mental health and wellbeing.

The Head to Health website provides links to trusted Australian mental health online and phone supports, resources and treatment options. It also has online programs and forums, as well as a range of digital information resources.

Using the search page, you can navigate to various resources and services for help if you’re experiencing mental health concerns, or trying to support someone else. If you’re not sure where to start, you can also use Sam the Chatbot. Sam provides tailored recommendations on information and services that best suit your needs.

Additionally, the Mental Health Council of Tasmania (MHCT) has put together a page on our website to help you stay informed and look after your mental health while we all deal with COVID-19.

As well as a series of tips to look after yourself, the page also includes links to official updates and information, as well as details about what MHCT is doing in response to the crisis. You can check out the website here.
