Many people with depression and anxiety disorders don’t seek help, which means that their symptoms are likely to last longer and recur. Frequently reported obstacles to help-seeking include lack of access (especially to psychological treatment), fears of stigma, and the belief that ‘no-one can help’. e-hub Web Services provide quality information and training via technology solutions in order to help to overcome these obstacles.
e-hub Web Services are online self-help programs (MoodGYM , e-couch and BluePages) which can be accessed anonymously and free of charge by all Australians 24 hours a day, from anywhere. The programs have been developed by international experts in the field of mental health and web service delivery research, some of whom have personally experienced depression. The programs are consumer focused and based on the best available scientific evidence. e-hub Web Services are delivered in partnership with e-hub Health Pty Ltd, an ANU spin-off company.
