Request a call

health support at

Or visit us at ALIA House, First Floor,
9 Napier Close, Deakin
.

Our Centre is a short walk from bus stops along route 57 and route 58.

We are open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm (closed public holidays).

Sometimes finding the
support you need can
seem overwhelming.

Rather than jumping straight into a service that might not suit you, it can be helpful to talk to someone who can guide you to the right kind of support you need.

We are a free service to help people in the Canberra community. You don’t need to make an appointment or present a referral or Medicare card. Request a call, call us, or walk in and have a chat.

We take the time to understand the challenges you’re facing and help you today, tomorrow, and one day at a time.

Head to Health Canberra will help you find the right service for your needs. We can help you by reaching out to services in the area that best suit your needs or goals, and collect service information so you feel confident connecting with them when you are ready.

Connecting with us is easy:

Request a call, call us, or walk in to chat to one of our mental health professionals

We take the time to understand the challenges you're facing, and assess your mental health and wellbeing

We can recommend the next steps, which could be:

  1. We may be able to offer support services with our psychologists and other mental health clinicians, depending on your needs
  2. We can refer you to appropriate support options – and help you to navigate the complex world of mental health support services
  3. We can provide you with useful online resources so you can direct your mental health journey at times that suit you

With your consent, we will keep your primary health care providers (i.e. your GP) in the loop to ensure continuity of your care. Our mental health professionals will check in with you along the way, to ensure you feel supported.
