Mood Mechanic Course

... The Mood Mechanic Course is designed to aims to teach practical skills for managing symptoms of stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression.

The Mood Mechanic Course is a free online and internet-delivered treatment program designed for young Australian adults aged 18 to 24. It aims to teach practical skills for managing symptoms of stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. The Mood Mechanic Course was developed because many young adults have difficulties with stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. But, many people never access or seek treatment.
The Mood Mechanic Course is being provided as a part of a large beyondblue funded project. You can read more about this project HERE.
