Mental health websites created by trusted organisations that give you detailed information and advice on specific mental health topics
Evidence-based apps and online programs that can help you build personal skills and track progress
Dedicated forums and other peer support services where you can talk to people with similar experiences
Phone, chat, and email services, if you're looking for confidential, professional support

Who is behind Head to Health?

Head to Health is the result of an extensive co-design process between the Australian Government Department of Health, people and families with a lived experience of mental health issues, as well as mental health organisations, service providers, health professionals, and the Australian public.

Acknowledgement

A special thanks is made to the late Jackie Crowe. Sadly, Jackie passed away shortly after Head to Health was launched. Jackie was the driving force in bringing a diverse group of people with experience of mental illness together to share the vision of positive end user engagement to improve mental health access and supports. Jackie will be missed and it is hoped she would be proud of what Head to Health continues to do.
