Free Wellbeing Coaching for People Affected by the Bushfires

If you live in the New England, North West or Mid-Coast regions and have been affected by the bushfires, you can access free mental health coaching via our bushfire wellbeing coaching line.

The stress of experiencing something such as a bushfire can leave people at a higher risk of developing depression or anxiety, even if they are not directly dealing with loss of property and/or possessions.

CALL THE COACHING LINE 1800 010 630 between 8.30am – 5pm Monday to Friday. No referral needed.

On behalf of the PHN, Bolton Clarke will provide free telephone coaching services with a mental health practitioner to work with you in setting practical, effective strategies to help get you back on track and manage your mental health.

Referrals to local, face-to-face support is available, if needed, through this service.

Access to the service is also available at: hneccphn.com.au/programsresources/bushfire-support

This service is for people experiencing mild to moderate distress or mental health concerns as a result of the recent fires and is not a crisis service.
