R U OK Day has opened a lot of conversations with friends or family, but without the right training or resources, a lot of them might have stayed unresolved.
"I think you should see someone" can be hard to say and the history of stigma around mental health may make it feel like an insult or accusation. However, this may be the encouragement someone needs to make a change or take a step forward.
Absolutely brilliant service. Can not recommend this enough. So easy to use the online platform. A diverse selection of psychologists to talk to depending on your circumstance.
I live in a regional area with very little resources available for mental health. My Mirror was a great help and was super quick with any questions including how to add my mental health plan.
In the current environment where wait lists for psychologists are 12 months plus, this service gives you access to wonderful psychologists with no wait lists.
I was having trouble getting mental health services in my area, at an affordable price, and that had time slots that were workable for me. I've been connected to a great psychologist, well suited to my needs. Highly recommend.
