It doesn’t matter what your age is, many of us experience stress, depression and anxiety. It can be triggered by work or financial pressures, family issues, health concerns or loneliness. If you’re finding the going tough, help is at hand.
Developed by Beyond Blue and delivered by Bolton Clarke, NewAccess is a free early intervention program that provides support from a coach, who will assess you, then work with you in setting practical, effective strategies to help you get back on track.
The NewAccess program has proven to be very effective in helping people tackle day-to-day pressures that are affecting their life.
The program includes six free sessions with your specially trained and experienced NewAccess coach. Sessions can take place over the phone or face-to-face, whichever works best for you. Your coach will also offer two free follow up sessions with you at a later date.
At your first appointment your coach will complete an initial assessment with you and develop a program that’s tailored to your specific needs.
If it’s right for you, your coach can also link you into other useful supporting groups – for example, employment, financial or housing assistance.
On average, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 8 men will experience some level of depression and 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will experience anxiety during their lifetime.
If any of the following are causing you to feel unhappy, moody, angry or unable to concentrate or sleep NewAccess could be right for you:
