NewAccess, developed by Beyond Blue, is a free mental health coaching program for anyone aged 12 and over who’s stressed, or feeling anxious or overwhelmed about everyday life issues, such as work, study, relationships and loneliness.
How does NewAccess work?
NewAccess connects you to a local mental health coach, trained in Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Over six sessions your NewAccess coach will support you to overcome difficult issues and regain confidence, providing you with practical skills to manage your stress and get back to feeling like yourself.
Our mental health coaches are uniquely able to deliver this service to young people aged 12 and over.
NewAccess is NOT a crisis service. It is an early intervention program designed to support people early and prevent potential crises down the track.
