Ever needed mental health help after hours?

Sometimes stress, anxiety, depression or grief can be overwhelming. Our Mental Health Nurses provide a chance to meet with someone face to face, to get on top of things early.

Our support service provides:
• Someone to listen to needs and concerns
• Help to know what steps to take next
• Recommendations for ongoing support services
• Checking in on how things are going down the track.

If you or someone you know are in an emergency or crisis contact 000 or Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Is this service suited to me?

The After Hours Mental Health Nursing Support Service has been designed to support people in the hours when services are limited.

The service is here to help people experiencing mild mental health issues like anxiety, stress, depression and grief.

This service is ideal for people needing:

  • assessment
  •  brief intervention
  • navigation of mental health services
  • medication review
When should I seek alternative support?

The After Hours Mental Health Nursing Support Service is not a crisis support or emergency service and we will not be able to meet the needs of people who present:

  • as actively experiencing psychosis
  • as actively suicidal
  • as high risk of being aggressive or violent
  • intoxicated or substance affected

Clients with these issues need a more urgent service and should contact 000 or visit a hospital Emergency Department.
