A new mental health phone line is set to improve access to mental health services and supports for Tasmanians – wherever they are across the State. “Access Mental Health” – which became fully operational last month, replacing the longstanding Mental Health Services Helpline – provides a single point of telephone contact for Tasmanians to access the right mental health services or support for their needs.

New and existing mental health consumers, as well as their families, friends, and carers can access the phone line by calling 1800 332 388 between 9am and 10pm, seven days a week.
