“I use these materials to educate patients on eMH services, provide easy access to crisis numbers and to provide other avenues of support when completing MH care plans.”

Overview

Digital mental health resources and services are available online, via mobile or over the phone. Australia is a world leader in the development of reliable digital mental health programs, and these make a substantial contribution to mental health services across Australia.

Practitioners can use digital mental health resources and services as an adjunct to other treatment, or as a stand-alone intervention.

Types of digital mental health resources

Head to Health offers a curated list of digital mental health resources from trusted Australian organisations:

 

  • Phone, chat, or email counselling, for confidential, professional support—in crises, or to address mental health concerns.
  • Evidence-based web programs and apps that can help build personal skills and track progress—in therapist-assisted or self-guided formats.
  • Forums and other peer support where people can speak to others with similar experiences.
  • Websites by trusted organisations that give information and advice on mental health topics.
