Sunbury Community Health

Sunbury Community Health is a not-for-profit community health organisation, providing a range of services that respond to the needs of Sunbury and its surrounding communities. We care about the health of our community, as an entire population. We are concerned not just about ill-health and treatment of disease, but about the factors that actually predict whether someone is healthy, like strong families, social cohesion and mental health, as well as the prevalence of risks such as obesity, tobacco, alcohol and drug use, family violence, problem gambling, and vulnerabilities that come from low incomes or ageing. We believe that it’s in making improvements to these factors that we make the biggest difference to health and wellbeing overall. While we are available to the entire community of Sunbury and its surrounds, we prioritise our services to those whose health and wellbeing is vulnerable or at risk. We invest our efforts where evidence exists that needs exist, and where we have evidence of approaches that work.

We'd like to welcome Tina, our new Gamblers Help Counsellor. Tina will be working from Sunbury Community Health on Fridays.

"I've been working in the counselling for 9 years, mainly specialising in drug and alcohol. I've worked with youth and adults, across mental health, outreach, and now 2 days a week in Gamblers Help. I will be based in Melton on Tuesdays and Sunbury on Fridays.

Gambler’s Help offers confidential and free counselling for those experiencing problems with gambling. Counselling, advice and support is also available to others affected, as we know that gambling can affect family and friends too. I can work with people from 16 years of age and up. We can also help link people to a financial counsellor."

To make a referral to Gambler’s Help, please call 1300 133 445 or email ghnintake@bchs.org.au. Currently there is no waiting list. Please share with your networks.
