Note: Mind Blank is not a crisis support service. We have however worked many years alongside the local health district with some very friendly youth mental health psychologists. Our associates are social workers, outreach workers, doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists and sociologists. The below information are some suggestions links and numbers to call for help. If you are supporting someone in a time of need and require immediate support call 000.
