Program overview

Through this program, Victorians dealing with the challenges of running a small business can get the mental health support they need to navigate through the impacts of COVID‑19.

Current support under this program includes the Partners in Wellbeing Helpline.

We also have information on wellbeing and mental health support for Victorian small businesses in languages other than English.

Partners in Wellbeing Helpline

If you're worried about your business, Partners in Wellbeing provides one-to-one wellbeing support and free access to financial counsellors and business advisers.

Call 1300 375 330 Monday to Friday 9am to 10pm or Saturday, Sunday and public holidays 9am to 5pm (excluding public holidays).

Further support available through the program

Mental health specialists will also be embedded in industry and business associations to provide members with immediate access to expert advisers and on-the-job training for staff to identify and respond to people in distress.

Rollout of these support services is expected to continue until 2022, with demand and future conditions set to guide further services.

Additional programs will be released soon with details available on this page.
