Mental health

Almost half of Australians will experience mental illness at some point throughout their lives. Accessible mental health services are more important than ever before.

The Centre for Online Health is working to develop telehealth services that connect people with the support they need. We are implementing and evaluating telemental health services in partnership with non-profit organisations, community organisations, government agencies and public hospitals.

These services use videoconferencing to connect people with clinicians for assessment and treatment. Telemental health services can also be used to facilitate peer-support and social inclusion for people who are feeling alone.

Feelings of isolation can be exacerbated by living in a remote location and telemental health services can help overcome this barrier.
