Peer-led telehealth counselling for nurses and midwives is now active

Nurse Midwife Health Program Australia (NMHPA) is now open for telehealth counselling for nurses, midwives and students of the professions living anywhere in Australia.

Free, confidential and independent counselling services and case-managed support is available for any sensitive health-related issue that nurses, midwives and students are experiencing.

Whether it is drug, alcohol or gambling, stress and burnout, bullying and harassment at work, or a chronic illness or mental health concern, experienced nurse and midwife counsellors are on hand to help.

NMHPA offers support in a welcoming, compassionate and non-judgemental environment – providing a safe place to connect and heal

The 18 March 2024 service opening marks the first phase in a staged rollout of NMHPA with the national program to be delivered in person and via telehealth through four hubs and regional offices across Australia later in 2024.

NMHPA is an Australia-government initiative aimed to help address the increasing rates of fatigue, stress and burnout among nurses and midwives, which have escalated since the start of the pandemic.

NMHPA will be officially launched on 30 April 2024 in Canberra by Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care the Hon. Ged Kearney MP, NMHPA Board Directors and Implementation team, along with industry stakeholders.
