NewAccess – Coaching you through tough times

NewAccess has been developed by Beyond Blue to provide free and confidential support to help you tackle day-to-day pressures.

A NewAccess coach, specially trained and experienced, supports you in setting practical goals that will get you back on track.

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: work stress or uncertainty, change in living arrangements, new parent worries, family problems, health concerns or uncertainty, long-term isolation or loneliness, financial worries.

Information for Primary Health Networks and Service Providers

Developed by Beyond Blue and evaluated as a successful program, NewAccess is now being separately funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health via Primary Health Networks (PHNs) to be available across Australia. Implement NewAccess and improve paths to Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in your area.

NewAccess evaluation

The program was independently evaluated by Ernst&Young in December 2015, it showed:

  • A 67.5 per cent recovery rate in people that have participated in the program.
  • NewAccess is both clinically successful and economically viable.
  • NewAccess appeals to Australians – for every person to make an initial appointment, 88 per cent proceed to treatment and 72 per cent continue treatment to completion.
  • NewAccess overcomes stigma – free entry, no medical referral, either face-to-face or over the phone sessions, no labelling and practical exercises help to attract those who do not traditionally seek help.
