Our youth health website www.tuneinnotout.com is the online portal full of information on a wide range of topics from depression, sexual health, alcohol and other drugs and more. Many of our visitors are seeking information to help manage a tough time. To help visitors find help in their local area we have become an approved host for the healthdirect Symptom Checker.
The healthdirect Symptom Checker is an online tool for consumers to check their symptoms and find trusted information and advice on what to do next. With Symptom Checker you can find out:
- what to do – advice on the next healthcare steps, whether it’s self-care, talking to a health professional, going to a hospital or calling triple zero (000)
- where to go – information on local healthcare services appropriate to the “what to do” advice
- more about your symptoms – links to further information about their symptoms, and possible causes, from trusted Australian healthcare organisations.
The healthdirect Symptom Checker is not designed to compete with GP consultations or other face-to-face services. It’s an adjunct and support to these.
