Baptcare Mental Health TasConnect
Baptcare Mental Health TasConnect is a free phoneline supporting Tasmanians with mental health concerns to identify which psychosocial service is best suited and provide them with accurate information on how that service can be accessed. Where appropriate we can place the referral for the caller or provide them with the information and documentation they need to access the service.
We can connect you with the support you need including to a peer worker if you need help applying for psychosocial access to the NDIS. We help you understand your options so you can choose the service that is right for you.
We’re not a crisis or counselling service, we are here to connect people with an appropriate psychosocial service.
Who this service is for
Anyone can call this service - the person experiencing mental health concerns, their support people including family members, friends, carers, other support people, services and health professionals.
Our phone line is staffed from 9am- 5pm Monday to Friday excluding public holidays.
