Get immediate support

We all have good days and bad days. Then there are those days when something isn't quite right, you've got something on your mind, or things just seem too much. Whatever it may be, sharing the load with someone else can really help. So, no matter who you are, or how you're feeling, you can talk it through with us – we'll point you in the right direction so you can seek further support.

Last year people in Australia accessed our service more than 254,000 times to discuss their concerns – both big and small – and you can too.

All calls and chats are one-on-one with a trained mental health professional, and completely confidential. Although we may ask for your first name and some general details, you can let us know if you’d like to remain anonymous.

In 2017 Beyond Blue’s telephone and online support service counselling was reviewed to determine the immediate and short-term impacts of a single session of psychological support and/or referrals. Download the details in the Beyond Blue Support Service Research Project - Final Report.

Give us a call any time of the day or night – select from the voice menu or simply hold on the line to talk with a trained mental health professional.

We'll be there to listen, provide information and advice, and point you in the right direction so you can seek further support for the cost of a local call (could be more from mobiles).

Help for people who are deaf or hard of hearing

People who are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment can contact us by phone using the National Relay Service.

Help for people for whom English is not their first language

People who do not use English as their first language can get free translation support from the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National).*
