Hi Danny G,
Great to see you on the beyondblue forum. You have brought up a topic that is particularly close to my heart as I live 45 minutes from anywhere and have a new baby so I understand your desire to know how to access support without having to be physically present.
The suggestions listed above are great. I will add one that I have used quite regularly. It is a free service called HealthDirect. They have a 24hour line that gets you support by a nurse. I have used it and even had a GP contact me and complete a telehealth appointment. There is also a symptom checker online that can be useful. The link to the webpage is here but you can call 1800 022 222.
There is telehealth mental health sessions available in some regions in Australia. You can establish whether your region is in this scheme by heading to this part of the Department of Health website here. http://www.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/mental-ba-telehealth
You need to click on the (Modified Monash Model) MMM locator map link on the above page and search using the right hand bar for what level your address is by clicking the Department of Health - custom remoteness classification. This remoteness indicator will advise if you are eligible for telehealth mental health sessions under the Better Access scheme. Your address needs to be between 4-7 under the MMM rating tool which is colour coded on the map. If you are in that range, then this can be a way to gain access to psychological services over the phone. You do however need a mental health care plan that is completed by a GP and it is dependant on the availability of mental health practitioners.
Another option is limited to some areas of Australia but might be worth checking. There is a Developed by beyond blue program called NewAccess. It gives you free access to low intensity Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and you don't need a GP referral. However, it is only available in some areas of Australia but might be worth checking as some of the sites do 'phone only' sessions. You can check if you are in a catchment area by clicking here. https://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support/newaccess
Someone has already mentioned Mindspot but I would like to highlight this again as you can gain ongoing support using this program and you do get some phone contact as well and there are several courses you can complete. www.mindspot.org.au
Wishing you the best possible outcome
