Mental Health Services

Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) is a not-for-profit organisation. We aim to improve health services by listening to communities to find out their health needs and issues. We then look to fund organisations to deliver services that best meet these needs.

We currently fund local organisations to deliver mental health services to the New England region, including short-term psychological therapy by qualified Allied Health professionals.

These free services are available to drought affected families and are listed below.

We also want to hear of the services that you feel will best help drought affected families within our region. You can provide your feedback or ask a question via the 'Share your story', 'Services survey' and 'Ask a question' tabs at the bottom of the page.

If you experience any issues with using the above services available, we are available to assist.
You can contact us on 1300 859 028 or info@hneccphn.com.au.

We also encourage you to sign up to our peoplebank site, so that you are notified of any roll-out of new services or assistance in your area.
