New Mental Health Tools Launched

As part of the Australian Government's newly released e-Mental Health Strategy, Minister for Mental Health Mark Butler recently announced the launch of two key online tools: mindhealthconnect and myCompass. Mindhealthconnect is Australia's first national e-mental health online portal and is designed to "allow people to access information and treatment as an alternative to traditional face-to-face services, in their own time, and in an environment in which they're comfortable," Minister Butler said. Mindhealthconnect provides Australians with a guide to trustworthy online therapy services and crisis support as well as information on conditions such as depression and anxiety. MyCompass includes online tools that enable users to monitor their moods and behaviors, as well as registration for motivational tips that are sent via e-mail and text message.
