The NewAccess program provides support for people living with mild to moderate stress, anxiety or depression. It is free, confidential and available to you, your friends and colleagues or anyone in your wider community over 18 years of age. The program is aimed at helping people tackle day-to-day pressures using practical techniques and providing skills that equip you for life.
The NewAccess Program includes up to 6 sessions which can be delivered over the phone, via Skype or in person. The sessions are delivered by trained mental health coaches who will guide you through a series of structured and evidence-based techniques to improve your wellbeing. At the first appointment, the NewAccess Coach will complete an initial assessment and develop a tailored program to meet your individual needs. The remaining appointments focus on providing practical strategies and education to help reduce your levels of stress, anxiety and/or depression. You do not need a GP referral and all sessions are free.
Is the program right for me?
Depression and anxiety are common. On average, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 8 men will experience depression during their lifetime, with the levels of anxiety even higher; 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men. While anxiety and depression are different conditions, it is not uncommon for them to occur at the same time. These two conditions, combined with stress can impact both your physical and mental health. The NewAccess program provides practical solutions for people to better manage their stress, anxiety and depression.
