Information for health professionals

​MindSpot provides high quality and convenient online assessment and treatment for adults with anxiety and depression.

MindSpot is a not-for-profit organisation funded by the Federal Government, meaning it is a free service for you and your patients.

The MindSpot team comprises psychologists, psychiatrists, mental-health workers and researchers committed to reducing barriers to effective care.

Most people who complete assessment or treatment with MindSpot come directly to us. But we also welcome referrals from health professionals.

2. Assessment

We will contact your patient and support them to complete the MindSpot Online Screening Assessment.

3. Treatment

We will support your patient to complete an eight-week evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) online course. They will able to access weekly contact from one of our experienced therapists. We will monitor their progress and safety and will check their progress three months after completing a course.

4. Feedback about assessment and treatment

Health professionals with a MindSpot account can monitor patient progress in real time. For patients who have given consent, we will send you their Assessment Report, as well as updates about their treatment if they enrol in a MindSpot treatment course.


Our treatment courses consistently produce encouraging results. Studies of more than 15,000 people who have completed a MindSpot treatment course show that:

  • Most participants experience an average 50% reduction in the severity of their symptoms of anxiety and low mood.
  • Most participants who work on the treatment courses for at least eight weeks, are likely to see improvements that are sustained for at least three months after treatment ends. In fact, results from eCentreClinic with 1,500 people tell us the improvements are sustained for at least two years after treatment.
  • 95% of participants would recommend a MindSpot treatment course to a friend
  • We obtain similar results regardless of a person’s age, gender, symptoms or where they live. Participants in the MindSpot treatment courses include people or all ages, from all walks of life with varying levels of symptoms (mild to severe), and from both cities and rural areas across Australia.
