Beat the blues online

Australians aged 60-75 are being urged to register for two free online courses dealing with mental health disorders.

The courses, Managing Your Mood and Managing Stress and Anxiety, are being run by the eCentreClinic, based at Sydney’s Macquarie University in collaboration with national depression initiative, beyondblue.

They are aimed at helping mature adults learn skills to cope with symptoms of anxiety, stress and low mood by targeting issues including changing roles, changes in health, and maintaining independence.

People do not need to come to the university but can stay at home for their treatment which is supported by clinical psychologists with specialist training.

Applications for the next trials of these online treatments are now open. People can find out more information and apply at their website [Link to]
