Head to Health

Pharmacy Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment has an­nounced the launch of its new dig­i­tal men­tal health gate­way, ‘Head to Health’.

Head to Health is de­scribed as an es­sen­tial tool for the one in five work­ing age Aus­tralians who will ex­pe­ri­ence men­tal ill­ness each year.

The web­site helps peo­ple take con­trol of their men­tal health in a way they are most com­fort­able with and can com­ple­ment face-to­face ther­a­pies.

“Ev­i­dence shows that for many peo­ple, dig­i­tal in­ter­ven­tions can be as ef­fec­tive as face-to-face ser­vices,” Health Min­is­ter Greg Hunt said.

“Head to Health pro­vides a one-stop shop for ser­vices and re­sources de­liv­ered by some of Aus­tralia’s most trusted men­tal health ser­vice providers.”

Go to head­to­health.gov.au for de­tails and ac­cess.
