Brief Therapy Services

Brief therapy services are an evidence-based first option for people who:

  • need help managing stress
  • are experiencing a difficult event or transition (i.e. new parents, retirement, leaving school, new job, stressful life event)
  • are experiencing minimal levels of distress but would not meet the criteria for a diagnosis of mental illness 
  • are experiencing mild levels of distress consistent with a diagnosis of mild depression and/or anxiety

Referring to brief therapy services as a first option to support people experiencing minimal or mild anxiety and or depression can help:

  • people access free or affordable mental health services (PHN-commissioned brief therapy services are free of charge for the person)
  • people from escalating to more moderate and severe mental health conditions
  • reduce waiting lists for more moderate to severe mental health services.
