Head2Health ‘Pop Up’ - 6 September 2021
HNECC has rapidly implemented a Head2Health “pop-up” mental health Hub at Tuggerah on the Central Coast. The hub is part of a State-wide Intake, Access and Referral (IAR) Service with seven other NSW-based PHNs to support the mental health and wellbeing of people impacted by the extended COVID-19 restrictions.
BEAM Health will be providing a multidisciplinary mental health service as part of the Commonwealth Government’s Head2Health initiative from 6 September 2021. Services can be accessed by calling 1800 595 212 Monday to Friday, 8:30am – 5.00pm (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.
