It's been a while when this deal was last time posted and that deal has expired. It is good to remind everyone that this free mental health help is available.

<< Hang in there Victoria. It'll be OK. >>

Mindspot provides free real time, online and phone Cognitive Behaviour Therapy counselling with a trained counsellor for common mental disorders. Treatment is for those 18 years and above and there is no need for a referral.

Treatment 8-week courses include

  • Wellbeing (26–65 years): Help adults learn to manage stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression

  • Wellbeing Plus (60+ years): Help older adults learn to manage stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression

  • Mood Mechanic (18–25 years): Help young adults learn to manage stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression

  • OCD (18+ years): Help adults experiencing distressing obsessions and compulsions to learn to manage their symptoms

  • PTSD (18+ years): Help adults who have experienced a trauma to learn to manage their symptoms

  • Pain (18+ years): Help people with chronic pain manage the impact of pain on their day-to-day life and their emotional wellbeing

  • Indigenous Wellbeing (18+ years Indigenous Australians): Help Indigenous Australian adults learn to manage stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression

The first thing you have to do is complete an Online Assessment, which you can do at any time.
We would then need to have a phone discussion with you to ensure the course is suitable to your needs. This will help you learn more about your symptoms and will help us to advise you about your treatment options, including a MindSpot treatment course.

If you choose to do a MindSpot treatment course you can access the course via the internet, or we can post the materials out to you.

    I don't know if it's going to be universally helpful or not, but the best thing I did last year was start looking into Stoicism as a way to live a good life.

    I learnt that it's actually the precursor behind Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is the most researched mental health therapy and one of the most widely prescribed methods of dealing with anxiety, stress, etc.

    If anyone maybe has some Audible credits they're unsure if how to use, or is looking for something to read, I can highly recommend some of the following:

    Modern Practical Uses For Stoic Thinking/CBT:
    How To Think Like a Roman Emperor - Donald Robertson
    Happy - Derren Brown
    The Coddling of the American Mind - Greg Lukianhoff & Jonathan Haidt

    Ancient Stoic Texts for Reference and Practicality:
    Meditations - Marcus Aurelius (Modern Library/Hays Translation)
    Discourses and Selected Writings - Epictetus (Penguin)
    Letters From a Stoic - Seneca

    Did the Wellbeing course last year when this was posted, and in conjunction with seeing a good psychologist (Medicare Mental Health Plan), learnt a lot. Finished the course but I still refer to it (you can access it for 3 months after you finish the course content) when I need to and I use the skills in daily life. Thank you OP for reminding others that this resources is available. Happy to reply to any PMs if anyone is curious but unsure about the process.

    I can also vouch for this course being very useful, it's conducted in the CBT style of psychology so a lot of the topics cover changing thought patterns, behaviours and how to turn your thinking and actions into positive things
    I've just finished the course this week and found it to be quite helpful, was advised by the psychologist that the materials are available for 6 months after the end of the 8 week course
