CCI was established to provide expert best-practice psychological interventions for people suffering from anxiety, mood and eating disorders, to disseminate these evidence-supported treatments, and to conduct research to further improve the outcomes of treatments.
CCI achieves these aims by:
- treating adults suffering from complex anxiety, affective disorders and eating disorders
- continuing to develop and evaluate innovative treatments
- conducting clinically applied research and collaborating with universities
- providing training and supervision for mental health practitioners and trainees in evidenced-based therapy
- providing resources.
CCI has developed a number of resources for consumers, mental health practitioners and medical practitioners, which are freely available through their website.
The resources provided on the website aim to provide general information about various mental health problems, as well as techniques that focus on a cognitive behavioural approach to managing difficulties. The materials relate to common psychosocial problems and are written to be used either as self-help materials or in conjunction with a therapist.
