  1. Hello. I hope this email finds you well.

    I believe that depressioNet, the organisation which runs both depressionServices and Working Well, and BlueHackers share the same vision of helping people with mental health issues gain access to services they deserve. As such, we feel your organisation is of relevance to our clients and consumers. By creating this link between both our services, we believe that not only will it be useful to your clients, but it will also foster the relationship between both our organisations and help to improve our respective search optimisation rankings. depressioNet is a forerunner in the field of online mental health services and has been helping people living with depression since 2000.

    We would really appreciate it if you are able to update your listing on ADDRESS and list us as follow:

    depressionServices (www.depressionServices.org.au)
    depressionServices.org.au is a service portal that offers a diverse range of interactive human services, including free counselling and peer support, utilising online technologies for Australians living with depression to help improve their mental health and wellbeing.

    The Counselling Service at depressioNet provides free counselling online to people residing in Australia who are impacted by depression. The Counselling Service is for clients who have depression who are committed to work with a Counsellor on managing depression and how it impacts on their daily living. The Counselling Service at depressioNet is comprised of qualified psychologists and counsellors, as well as a team of volunteers and students on placement; together supporting clients with depression.

    Peer Support
    Peer Support is a group process whereby people who share a common issue are provided the chance to help each other in a targeted effort to discuss this topic. The key ethos of peer support is that people both provide, and receive support from likeminded peers who have similar experiences in life. The depressioNet difference is how we facilitate Peer Support models to fit into an Internet service – providing greater scope for people all across Australia to engage with support from their peers. depressioNet’s Peer Support Service is a facilitated and moderated service that supports and encourages clients to discuss their experiences of mild to moderate depression with others.
