USEFUL WEBSITES

Mediros Clinical Solutions

Mediros is a site devoted to neuropsychotherapy, which is how therapists bridge the gap between brain science and therapy. This site has access to videos, journals, workshops, books and articles on many things about therapy, neuroscience and mental health. It’s suitable for therapists and anyone looking to understand how their own brain responds to life stressors.

Psychcentral

PsychCentral is an American website that has lots of information about mental health issues, parenting, self-esteem and grief & loss, among other things. It has some great resources and access to research, quizzes and blogs.

Beyond Blue is a great resource. Based in Australia, it has access to resources and information about depression and anxiety.

Sane  Australia

Sane is an Australian site devoted to supporting people with mental illnesses. It has factual information and great resources aimed at the general public.

Men’s Mental Health

For men with a bit of a quirky sense of humour, this site seems like a good resource on mental health. It has some tips and information on how to get through stress, sadness, depression and general life circumstances. The information makes the human experience easy to understand and not so scary to ask for help.

This is for the down to earth fellas and the people who care about them.

I particularly like some of the “one-to-one” therapies listed on the Man Therapy page.

Note: This is an American based site.

I also found an Australian version, which is sponsored by Beyond Blue.

Caring

Sometimes things happen in life that leaves a family member or friend in need of support. Whether it is due to some kind of illness or disability, caring for a loved one can place some pretty heavy loads on you, both physically and emotionally.

The network of Carers organisations around Australia are there to support you. They can help you navigate the services and systems you need to utilise for your loved one/s. Each state and territory has their own carers organisations, appropriately named for the specific state; Carers Victoria, Carers WA, and so on. They can all be accessed through the Carers Australia website, which can be found at,

You can also make contact via their national phone number, which will take you through to the head office in your state. The people who answer the phone will then make appropriate referrals to get you what you need. The number is 1800 242 636.
