Online treatment options

Online mental health treatment programs provide easy access to mental health information and support at a time and place that suits you.

An online program can provide you with anonymity, flexible access from your computer or mobile phone, and most are free of charge. They can also provide support before and during engagement with a mental health professional.

There are many useful resources and programs online, however, not all are reliable. The websites listed have been chosen as they are evidence-based and developed by recognised Australian institutions.
