The Mental Health and Wellbeing Hubs allow Victorians to access free and immediate support for mental ill-health. The Hubs act as a ‘front door’ service to the mental health system and can connect you with the long-term support services that you need to get well and stay well.
About the Mental Health and Wellbeing Hubs:
The hubs provide a mix of free face-to-face support, telehealth, mobile outreach, and online delivery services.
A wide range of holistic supports for psychological distress or mental health concerns and life stressors are available, including:
- lowered mood
- substance use or addiction (for yourself or those you care about)
- financial difficulties
- loneliness or social isolation.
Mind support workers will assess a person’s needs, help develop strategies to cope, and provide direct links and pathways to other health and social support services.
Mind’s evaluation data shows that people who have been supported by the Mental Health and Wellbeing Hubs feel less sad (21% reduction), less nervous (24% reduction) and less restless (13% reduction).
Who are Mental Health and Wellbeing Hubs for?
People of all ages in the Bendigo and surrounding areas who have any mental health or wellbeing concerns. People can get support without any eligibility criteria or a referral from their GP.
