Mental health is vital to our overall health and wellbeing. But for more than three million Australians who live with anxiety and depression*, the road to recovery can be hard to negotiate. That’s why we’re so proud of the MindStep® program.
MindStep® is a confidential phone-based program, delivered by specially trained mental health coaches using proven techniques with measurable results. Evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is used to complement the care patients receive from their GP, psychologist or psychiatrist. The program is designed to support people to take back control of their mental health – at a time that suits them and in the privacy of their home.
The results speak for themselves. After-program reports and patient feedback on our MindStep® program are overwhelmingly positive. Around 75% of all graduates show a measurable improvement in their mental health, or recover completely.
Now that’s something to smile about.
