Suffering from depression, anxiety or stress often comes with an associated stigma, which can make it difficult or awkward to seek help. The launch of a new online tool is designed to help those living with a mental health issue.
myCompass has been developed by a team from the Black Dog Institute and is funded by the Australian Government. It works by assessing a user’s symptoms and then providing a personalised support program. The interactive program uses psychological tools, mood monitoring and behavioural assessment to get the best program for an individual.
You can sign up for the myCompass tool, which can be accessed on smartphones and computers. Or if you would like to know more, you can watch an overview video at myCompass.org.au.
