Change to WayAhead operations during COVID-19

WayAhead is following the advice of health authorities very closely during COVID-19 and is advising its staff to practice social distancing and to work from home as much as possible. We do have technology in place to ensure our services have limited or no disruption but there will be some disruption to some of our scheduled face-to-face events. We are requesting our staff attend meetings virtually or by using the phone to help with social distancing. We will continue to update everyone on any changes that are required, however during this period as much as possible we are operating in a business as usual approach. We know that this is a difficult and unusual period for everyone, but together as a community, we can get through it.

Need help? Our mental health information line is available from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday.
