HELP IS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY

ACCESSLINE 1800 800 944







Every year 1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental health condition which effects how a person feels, thinks, behaves and relates to others.


This can develop into more severe mental health condition so it’s important to seek help.


Urgent care is given to people in crisis and who are at risk.


EMERGENCY OR CRISIS


In an emergency or a crisis you can go to the Deniliquin Hospital Emergency Department. They are well trained and equipped to ensure advice for people with mental health problems and timely access to The Mental Health Emergency Consultation Service – known as MHECS for short.


This is a 24 hour a day and 7 day a week service. Once the staff in the Emergency Department have spoken to you and agree that you need the MHECS service, a clinician will speak to you via video conference to work out what the next steps are so that you can receive the best support and treatment.
