Over the phone
Each state in Australia has 24/7 helpline staffed by senior GPs and experienced counsellors trained in doctors’ health. When you call a helpline you will speak to someone at our paging service who will then ask you for a name and contact number on which our on-call doctor or counsellor can reach you.
This is not an emergency or crisis line, but a first point of contact. We will talk to you about your concerns – physical and mental – and provide you with advice on what steps to take next. All calls are completely confidential and non-judgemental.
We’ve created a set of four connected learning modules designed specifically to address the needs of doctors – from self care, to treating other doctors. Start learning online any time.
We’ve collated a library of resources offering research and advice for doctors at different stages of their career. You can access these in our resource hub. We’ve also prepared a range of short-read guides to help give you guidance on the go.
