Northern NSW Local Health District has transitioned to a new Mental Health Access Line. The new number for the ‘Mental Health Line’ is 1800 011 511.
Trent Taylor, Manager of Clinical Partnerships, Mental Health Services in Lismore said the Mental Health Line provides 24 hour mental health connection and referral services and is staffed by mental health professionals.
“The new ‘Mental Health Line’ is a single point, state-wide service that will connect the people of NSW with the right care,” Mr Taylor said.
“Services will continue to be provided at the same level as the existing Mental Health Access Line and callers will still receive the high level of care provided by the mental health professionals,” Mr Taylor said.
The new ‘Mental Health Line’ 1800 011 511 number will be operational from November 2011, enhancing existing services by providing the opportunity for people to call one single number within NSW and directly link with local Mental Health Services, and to Mental Health Services in other regions throughout NSW connecting them to the right care.
