Help-seeking for Mental Health…

Just recently, a few people have asked me for some links on getting help for people experiencing mental health challenges. So I decided to put a few links for help-seeking for mental health below.

Getting immediate help (open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week) –

  • Australia – you can access Lifeline 131114 or click here to see their website, Mens Helpline 1300 789978 and click here for their website or KidsHelpLine (for young people 5-18 years of age) 1800 551800 or click here to visit their website.
  • If you are in another country – click here to visit befrienders.org, which gives an overview of other helplines across the world.
Other relevant links – 
  • Click here to access beyondblue‘s directory of Medical and Allied Health Practitioners in Mental Health
  • The MoodGYM Training Program is a website linked to the Australian National University where people can learn cognitive behaviour therapy skills for the preventing and coping with depression. Click here to access the website.

    Always seek help if you are feeling overwhelmed and can’t handle the situation.
