Head to Health wins Sitecore Experience Award

Head to Health delivers Best Web Content Experience using Sitecore Experience platform (XP)

Speedwell are proud to announce that the Head to Health project has won the Sitecore Experience Award for Best Web Content Experience in the Australia and New Zealand region. The project is a significant example of a user-centred online experience using the Sitecore Experience platform (XP).

Australian Government Digital Marketplace opportunity

The opportunity to build and operate the new digital mental health gateway,, was released by the Australian Department of Health via the Digital Marketplace. As a panellist of the Digital Transformation Agency, Speedwell won this major Government IT project by joining forces with digital designers, Liquid interactive.

In collaboration with the Australian Department of Health, the Head to health project set a new benchmark for co-design in the digital mental health sector. Equally, it is a significant example of a MVP delivered on-time and under budget using agile development.

About the project

The new online presence was to replace an existing site called MindHealthConnect - the overarching brief was to deliver an engaging user experience for Australians seeking access to high quality mental health advice and resources.

The strategy was to create a site with a robust search system that included four pathways: topic pages for context, search for quick discovery, chatbot for recommendations, and a crisis page for emergency support. Each path guides users through a common pool of resource cards, with sophisticated metadata enabling the right cards to be surfaced for the right needs.

Head to Health has shifted the utility from simply being a place to find information, to providing a deeper connection for visitors through User Experience (UX) design and curated content.
