Online Professional Depression Treatment

Professional Depression Treatment and Therapy, Online via Telehealth.

Are you struggling with depression and looking for online support?

 

Often characterised by prolonged and unshakeable feelings of sadness or hopelessness depression can lead us into social isolation, creating a cycle that often makes our depression deeper, making us feel worse.

 

Statistics collected by Beyond Blue found that approximately 1.16 million Australian’s aged 16 to 85 are currently experiencing depression – so you are not alone.

In addition to that, it’s estimated that 17% of Australian’s (one in six people) are currently experiencing anxiety or depression.

It’s clear that these experiences are widely shared in Australia.

 

However, support-seeking has grown at a rapid rate over the last twenty years. It’s estimated that over half the population of Australian’s struggling with a mental health condition are seeking psychological intervention. This in turn is improving the livelihoods of the affected person, their families and their relationships.

 

Online depression therapy delivered via telehealth is not a new concept and was already growing at a steady rate prior to 2020.

 

However, during the global pandemic two factors at play greatly accelerated the adoption of online depression treatment:

  1. Forced social distancing which made e-health and online treatment the norm

  2. Increased feelings of social isolation, heightened levels of uncertainty as a result of ongoing health concerns, record levels of job-loss and unemployment

Medicare rebated depression treatment with a personally matched, experienced psychologist.

One of the misconceptions with online depression treatment is that it’s not rebated through Medicare – this is not the case.

 

At Online Psychologists Australia our sessions are rebated as part of Medicare. You’ll be individually matched with an expert psychologist that best meets your unique needs and preferences and your depression treatment will be largely reimbursed by Medicare.

What are the benefits of online depression treatment?

Commonly one of the challenges when battling depression is that people can struggle to muster the energy required to even leave their home.

Online psychology sessions allow individuals to receive the care they need from the comfort of their loungeroom.


At Online Psychologists Australia, we find some of the major benefits for online depression treatment include:
 

  • Added flexibility around treatment times (after or even before regular working hours)

  • Reduced pressure or treatment stress for the patient

  • Private and discreet sessions

  • Medicare rebated sessions

  • Patients often feel more comfortable, and this can speed up their recovery process

  • Patients are more likely to keep up consistent sessions due to lower barriers

"The privacy and comfort of having sessions online, but still face-to-face over Zoom made me feel so much more at ease. I was able to open-up much quicker and felt like I was making progress after just my first session."
