Head to Health for Mental Health Support
Formerly known as HeadtoHelp, Head to Health supports Victorians of all ages. If your mental health is suffering because of the current pandemic, call Head to Health now.
What is Head to Health?
Head to Health hubs, set up as a state-wide service by Victoria’s six PHNs, offer clinical advice, referral and wraparound care for Victorians struggling to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The hubs are needs-based and recovery-focused. They support people in mental health distress with access to multidisciplinary teams of mental health workers, including psychologists, mental health nurses, social workers, and alcohol and drug workers.
The development of Head to Health followed concerns over rising incidents of self-harm, and a spike in the use of services like Beyond Blue, Lifeline and Kids Helpline by Victorians.*
Murray PHN CEO, Matt Jones said the hubs would provide additional mental health capability to help Victorians find the right mental health service for their needs. Head to Health provides onsite support for those who need it, along with telehealth for anyone across our region.
“Our focus will be to provide help for people who need support with their mental health, often for the first time in their lives,” he said. “Head to Health will work closely with existing providers including GPs and hospitals, referring people to more intensive mental health care or social supports if they need that level of help.”
The Australian Government announced $26.9m of new funding to establish 15 dedicated mental health clinics (hubs) across Victoria on 17 August 2020.
