Mood Gym is powered by the Centre for Mental Health Research (CMHR) at the Australian National University and “aims to help you identify and overcome problem emotions and show you how to develop good coping skills for the future”. You can start and stop as you go through the modules of this programme.
ecouch is the latest offering from ANU and is “a self-help interactive program with modules for depression, generalised anxiety & worry, social anxiety, relationship breakdown, and loss & grief.” “It provides evidence-based information and teaches strategies drawn from cognitive, behavioural and interpersonal therapies as well as relaxation and physical activity.” E-couch is also a research site as they use information gathered through the programme so the government can understand more about how to help people with depression and anxiety. Privacy is assured, but you are able to use an alias if you prefer.
Living life to the full is authored by Dr Chris Williams, a Professor of Psychiatry and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at the University of Glasgow. He set up this programme to make CBT more widely available and does not profit from the site (even the bookstore proceeds go elsewhere). You can start and stop the programme as time allows.
