Head to Health Phone Service

Head to Health Phone Service is a Commonwealth-funded mental health initiative that offers access to mental health information, services and supports through multidisciplinary care teams and integration with existing services across the region 

Brisbane South PHN has commissioned Neami National to deliver the Head to Health Phone Service locally. The Head to Health Phone Service is the preferred referral pathway for patients in the Brisbane south region. 

Head to Health satellites

Brisbane South PHN welcomes the recent funding announcement to expand Head to Health mental health satellites for adults in Logan and Redlands areas to provide immediate, as well as short-to-medium term supports.   

Head to Health satellites offers in-person mental health service navigation for people who require mental health, alcohol and other drugs, and suicide prevention support.  

The Logan and Redlands Head to Health satellites will complement the existing network of service, to improve access to supports for individuals who are experiencing crisis, or who are experiencing significant mental and/or emotional distress.
