MindSpot, Australia's first free online and telephone mental health clinic


Parliamentary Secretary for Mental Health, Melissa Parke has launched MindSpot, Australia's first free online and telephone mental health clinic.

The project has been developed by a team of national and international experts led by researchers from Macquarie University and Access Macquarie Limited - the University's commercial company, and is in partnership with the Federal Government.

The initiative is part of the Australian Government's mental health reform package to improve access and expand mental health services in remote areas across Australia. It provides confidential assistance to people nationally via the Internet, phone or email.

The MindSpot Clinic is a free telephone and online service for Australians with stress, worry, anxiety, low mood or depression. We provide mental health screening assessments, therapist-guided treatment courses and referrals to help people recover and stay well. The online clinic delivers research-based treatment and operates 7 days a week.
