AISNSW Mental Health Services Directory
Find services in your local area
Welcome to the Mental Health Services Directory (the Directory).
The Directory has been designed by AISNSW to support member schools with accessing clear information about a curated selection of mental health services available in their region.
Schools may use the Directory to search for services enabling a streamlined and comprehensive pathway of care. Pathways for students’ mental health care could include early access to services, as well as signposting to the provision of targeted supports and services for students who are struggling or unwell.
Where students and their families engage with mental health services, a range of people may be involved including medical and allied health professionals. It is important that, wherever possible, mental health professionals collaborate with schools about the student’s support plan and with the family’s permission, communicate appropriate information to ensure the best possible outcomes for the student.
The services in the Directory have been reviewed and curated based on the service type, age-group, the threshold for the support provided, relevance of the services to schools, evidence-base of the program/interventions, accessibility of the service.
