      Pity they're just treating symptoms instead of addressing the structural changes that are required to actually change anything.

      Our society is currently arranged so that 50% of people have psychological problems. This is a failed system.

      • I agree. The capitalist system alongside government/business corruption in Australia and many countries is causing higher rates of mental illness than those in more equal societies.

        The political system & society have psychological problems. We need collective treatment because the system is sick :(
        The coronavirus disruption is indication that we have systemic problems. Denying it makes it worse.
        Time to heal our souls :)

      • Looking at the world with a dim view doesn't help with perspective. We're lucky to live in a society that acknowledges these things and that kind of attitude is pessimistic at best. Having traveled a lot and lived in 3 countries Australians are so lucky to have the health system we have. Nothing is perfect, the expectation of that is detached and unrealistic. Appreciate what's infront of you as the majority of the world doesn't have this.

    • Thanks, ran into while browsing through that website. Was meant to look into CBT for a while.

  • Can this replace a counsellor? They're so expensive and you only get 10 sessions a year :(

    • If you call and request a concession rate, 9/10 practices will offer it to you.

      Also - regarding the effectiveness of these programs, it depends on what kind of difficulties you're seeking help with.

  • Mental Health Online's services are not intended to replace face-to-face therapy.
    If, at any time, you believe that Mental Health Online is not meeting or addressing your needs, or gives rise to other concerns about your health, please seek the services of an appropriate health care professional, like your GP.
