Hear2Talk is a free over the phone service where you can get confidential support to manage feelings of stress, anxiety and burnout that are impacting your work and everyday life.
The service is open to all workers in New South Wales and is available from 12 pm to 7 pm, six days a week (Sunday - Friday).
Support from someone who understands
When you call Hear2Talk, you’ll speak with one of our skilled peer workers who have first-hand experience in managing stress, anxiety or wellbeing challenges.
They’ll take the time to listen to you and understand what you’re experiencing. They can then help you identify your strengths to build strategies for managing the challenges you face in work and life.

"People want to be heard and to speak to someone who understands what they are experiencing so they can trust their own thoughts again. They leave our phone calls feeling confident to make hard decisions and with a solid awareness of their strengths."

Follow up support
Some people find a follow up call a few days after you’ve spoken with Hear2Talk valuable. At the end of every call, we’ll ask if you’d like to hear from us again to check in and see how you’re doing.
If you would like additional support, our peer workers will connect you with other appropriate support services to continue your wellbeing.
