Make the call on your mental health today

All Western Australians, no matter their postcode or their circumstances, deserve access to quality and affordable mental health care and support.

Make the call on your mental health today is a new campaign to raise awareness of Head to Health 1800 595 212, a free, national mental health phone line, available statewide in WA.

The campaign will be active throughout 2024, using a mix of media channels, including keyword search, social and radio.

Initially, it will geo target communities within Swan, Armadale, Goldfields-Esperance and Bunbury-Manjimup regions, some of which have a Head to Health Centre and all of which have been identified as having a high need for mental health care.

Head to Health offers confidential assessment and referral for anyone seeking help for their mental and emotional wellbeing and/or wanting to support a patient, or someone they care about. No appointment is needed, and referrals are not required.

Part of the wider Head to Health system, including the Head to Health website and Head to Health centres, the phone line is an important gateway to mental health advice and support for Western Australians. It operates Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm.

Staffed by clinicians, the service uses the Initial Assessment and Referral Decision Support Tool. This helps to determine the most appropriate level of care for the caller and direct them to the most appropriate service, based on their needs.

If you, or someone you know, needs help with their mental health, I urge you to make the call on your mental health today.
