Mental Wellbeing

As defined by the Australian Government, a person’s mental health affects how they feel, think, behave and relate to others (health.gov.au)

According to the Australian Government nearly half of all Australians aged 16 to 85 years will experience mental illness at some point in their life (health.gov.au/health-topics/mental-health)

This is an alarming figure, but there is help available. Below are some websites you, your friends or family might find helpful.

 

Head to Health

There are lots of organisations and programs available specifically for mental health which is great but it can be challenging to find the one that suits you.

Head to Health has been developed by the Australian Government to point you to mental health information, programs, and services from publicly funded providers. Head to Health makes your search easier so you can find something that suits you.
