How effective are digital resources?

Digital mental health resources are particularly beneficial for people with or at risk of mild to moderate mental health difficulties, or people supporting someone with mental health issues.


Quality digital resources are convenient, accessible, and private. They can be used as standalone supports, or in combination with face to face therapies.


If you need or prefer to talk to a health professional in person for specific advice and assistance, we recommend the National Health Services Directory to find professionals near you.

Acknowledgement

A special thanks is made to the late Jackie Crowe. Sadly, Jackie passed away shortly after Head to Health was launched. Jackie was the driving force in bringing a diverse group of people with experience of mental illness together to share the vision of positive end user engagement to improve mental health access and supports. Jackie will be missed and it is hoped she would be proud of what Head to Health continues to do.
