@Historylover yes i agree it is impossible to find a GP, pyschologist or pyschiatrist when needed without considerable cost or waiting time.

A mental health line maybe in NSW 1800 011 511

Support groups are hard to find now with Covid.

This is how I stumbled across on SANE forums in the last week.

What about a local club for social connection (if it is not acute mental health stuff),  like a low cost walking group or a yoga / exercise class with like minded souls. 

Is there a womens health centre anywhere nearby?

sometimes i find apps are useful 

or writing /typing down whatever ever is in my head so that i can put my hands on my thoughts and discuss it when i finally get through to a health professional. 

Accosting strangers on the street may have benefits..
