According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is defined as “a state of physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. The significance of sound mental health is just as important as physical health for an individual to lead a fulfilling life and make a positive contribution to society; this should not come as a surprise. However, the state of mental health among individuals has long gone unnoticed and even neglected at times, often being left unrecognised. At home, in schools, institutions and even at the workplace and among athletes, the prevalence of mental health issues has risen significantly.
The National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing conducted in 2007 found that at least 1 in every 5 Australians from age 16 to 85 suffered from at least one form of mental illness during the last 12 months. The data from Missions Australia’s Youth Survey from 2014 cited similar statistics. Fortunately, there has been an increase in the awareness and emphasis on an individual’s mental health in recent years, resulting in a variety of mental health services emerging to address this global crisis. From psychotherapy to counselling and mental health coaching, these mental health services have become easily accessible through various digital mediums for everyone in every corner of the world.
Digital mental health services have enabled virtually anyone with access to a computer or a smartphone to seek quality guidance and support from trusted mental health professionals. Through digital platforms, people can easily gain access to mental health services at any time for themselves or their loved ones, often for a fraction of the cost of private counselling. These services include online programs, group or private sessions, apps, web chat, support communities and even one-on-one direct conversations with certified mental health professionals.
There is a large amount of evidence validating the effectiveness of digital mental health services, which is on par with in-person counselling sessions. The prevalence of digital health services has also encouraged an increasing number of mental well-being professionals to transition into virtual counselling, enabling them to increase their reach and positively impact more lives. Thanks to the digital medium today, mental health professionals can completely commit to their cause by providing affordable mental health services for everyone while securing a reliable and respectable source of income.
