Find a way forward

Midland Head to Health is a walk-in service for adults (over 18), offering free advice and support to people living north of the river in Perth, experiencing mild to moderate mental health concerns, including stress and anxiety, as well as their family members, carers and friends. 

If needed, the centre can also provide assessment and short to medium-term treatment.

Midland Head to Health is staffed by a range of health professionals and is open 10am-8pm every day of the year. 

Services are free and an appointment is not needed. Referrals are accepted but not necessary to access the service.

The centre is designed to feel welcoming and safe for everyone, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from diverse cultural backgrounds and LGBTIQ+ people.

Services include: 

  • initial assessment 
  • one-to-one counselling 
  • access to therapy groups
  • support from people with lived experience
  • care coordination with other agencies (e.g. NDIS)
  • we also offer telehealth consultations – get in touch to find out more

Specialist services offered to Midland Head to Health clients can include:

  • Alcohol and other drug (AoD) counselling

    Our onsite AoD counsellor can provide specialist counselling, information on treatment options and support to anyone seeking help with alcohol or drug use. 
  • Art therapy

    Art therapy uses art media as a mode of expression and communication to help people address emotional issues which may be causing confusion or distress. Art therapy can be offered as part of your mental health treatment. 
  • Individual placement and support (IPS) service

    Find out more in our brochures for clients and prospective employers.
    IPS is available to Midland Head to Health clients and focuses on the individual needs of people with mental illness who are seeking to enter or remain in employment or education. Employment specialists help participants with coaching, advocacy and on-the-job support. 

Our caregivers will discuss with each client which services could be beneficial for them.

With immediate care, access to information and assistance navigating to other appropriate services, Midland Head to Health will help you find a way forward.

Advice and support for people caring for others

We understand that caring for people who are experiencing mental health issues can be overwhelming. 
We’ve got some advice on how to care for yourself, how to seek professional help and additional information. 

Consumer informed design

 To ensure the new centre reflects local needs and delivers the best possible outcomes for the community, the service design has been shaped by local co-design. This includes input from people with lived experience such as consumers, family and carers, local health professionals and service providers, local government and the wider Midland/Ellenbrook community.

Read the Co-Design Recommendation Report.

St John of God Social Outreach, part of St John of God Health Care, is the operator of Midland Head to Health, appointed by WA Primary Health Alliance, operator of Perth North PHN. Midland Head to Health has been made possible through funding provided by the Australian Government under the PHN Program.
