Things You Do Course

MindSpot Research: The 'Things You Do'

The MindSpot Clinic is continually developing and testing new online treatments. Our newest project, the ‘Things You Do’ Course, is a 4-week treatment designed to help adults self-manage symptoms of depression and anxiety.

The ‘Things You Do’ Course aims to support you to self-manage your symptoms by developing new daily habits.

The ‘Things You Do’ Course is free, confidential, and can be completed in your own time. The Course aims to support people to do everyday activities which we know can support psychological health. The types of activities the Course will encourage you to do include:

  • Healthy Thinking
  • Meaningful Activities
  • Setting Goals
  • Good Routines
  • Socialising

As the ‘Things You Do’ is a new treatment course, it is being provided as part of a clinical research trial. In addition to receiving a Treatment Guide, some people will be randomly selected to receive daily wellbeing reminders via text message help support them through the ‘Things You Do’ Course. Some people will also be randomly selected to start the Course after a 4-week waiting period.

The ‘Things You Do’ Course is recommended for people who:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Are Australian residents
  • Experience symptoms of low mood, social anxiety, panic attacks, or excessive worry
  • Want to learn how to self-manage their symptoms

The ‘Things You Do’ Course is not suitable for people who:

  • Are currently suicidal – click here to get urgent help
  • Are not Australian residents

We advise you to discuss your participation in this course with your GP and other health professionals. Maintaining a good working relationship with your GP is essential and they can help you decide whether this program is going to be suitable for you. You can find out if you are eligible for this Course by completing the MindSpot Online Assessment.
