We’re lucky to have lots of excellent online mental health programs and services.
These are particularly useful for people who want to learn more about mental health and get some therapeutic support but aren’t quite ready yet to visit a professional face-to-face.
There are two good entry points into discovering the best online mental health focused services and resources.
Head to Health is a government created portal to finding mental health resources from trusted service providers. The site isn’t just designed to provide links to services and resources, there are educational materials on there as well so you can learn more about mental health and wellbeing.
Another excellent site is eMHprac who have compiled a list of “Australian online and teleweb programs, all of which have been developed by credible sources, such as the Australian Government, universities, and national non-government organisations. This includes apps, online programs, online forums, and phone services, as well as a range of digital information resources. Check out the directory.
