Beyond Blue’s NewAccess for Small Business Owners program

NewAccess for Small Business Owners is a Beyond Blue initiative that gives small business owners easy entry to practical, early support for their mental health.

Funded by the Australian Government and available nationally via Telehelath, NewAccess uses low-intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) practices across six sessions to provide people with a personalised toolkit to manage day-to-day challenges and help break the cycle of negative and/or unhelpful thoughts.

NewAccess for Small Business Owners is a free, confidential mental health coaching program developed by Beyond Blue, supporting small business owners to improve their mental wellbeing.

The program uses an initial assessment carried out by a clinically supervised coach to identify if NewAccess for Small Business Owners is the most appropriate service to support your mental health. Individuals under the age of 18 or those currently receiving psychological or psychiatric treatment are not able to access the service.

The program uses relatable language and concepts and is delivered by people who have a background in small business – making it an ideal service for small business owners.

“One great thing about NewAccess was the accessibility. I was under so much stress financially and it was free.” — NewAccess participant.
