Mental Health and Wellbeing Local

What is the Frankston Adult Mental Health and Wellbeing Local?

Your Mental Health and Wellbeing Local is a new service that will offer immediate mental health and wellbeing support whenever you need it. Local Services will be the front door to your mental health and wellbeing support, and they are available for anyone who needs support with their mental health. It is free, easy to access and located in your community. We believe anyone needing help should be able to access straight forward continued support. We’ll be with you throughout your journey.

What services does this program provide?

We are currently offering Telehealth services and will be offering Face to Face appointments in early 2023.  We can provide you with one-on-one wellbeing support and advice over the phone through our Wellbeing Navigators, who will help guide you explore the services and supports that are right for you. We will gradually start providing more services and expect to have fully operational services and supports 7 days a week by mid-2023.
