On the Line Australia, provider of MensLine Australia, welcomes the Federal Government’s response to the Mental Health Commission’s Review.
On the Line Acting CEO, Linda Kensington commends the Government’s outlined regional approach to service planning and integration.
“On the Line Australia supports the Federal Government’s plans to develop a mental health system that understands and can respond to the local needs of communities across Australia” said Ms Kensington.
On the Line also supports the Government’s emphasis on digital health.
Through its current services, including Suicide Call Back Service, ATAPS Suicide Support Line and MensLine Australia, On the Line understands the vital role telephone and online counselling plays in ensuring Australians have access to professional counselling support when and where they need it.
“We look forward to working with Government, Primary Health Networks and other organisations across the mental health sector to ensure we best meet the needs of our clients and continue to provide professional, high quality clinical support for communities across Australia.
“We know professional 24 hour telephone and online support overcomes traditional barriers that prevent people accessing support, such as geography, financial and social isolation” said Ms Kensington.
On the Line is committed to developing innovative counselling solutions and was the first organisation in Australia to launch on demand 24/7 video and web-chat counselling services.
