Support a friend with starting therapy

You are not alone in finding conversations about mental health difficult to navigate. 

"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. 

Luckily with movements like R U OK? and Mental Health Awareness month times are changing and these conversations are encouraged and accepted. 

Start the conversation

start the conversation

We all need support sometimes and, chances are, we've all had a friend in need. Sometimes you notice changes in behaviour, someone's light seeming dim, or just someone trying to cope with big changes in their lives. 

If you are noticing changes in behaviour or having conversations where you believe a therapist could help there are ways to open the conversation with respect, care, and purpose. 

The #1 tip? Start the conversation.

Listen and lead with compassion

Mental health support for your friends

Approach the conversation with care & concern and emphasise why you want to help. 

Create a safe space for someone to share their concerns while you listen without judgement. Relating with your own experience can be helpful, but be mindful of shifting focus to yourself and ensuring you're there for them.

Let us help with the logistics

Mental Health Support from videoconferencing

One of the hardest parts about starting therapy is finding the right psychologist who is readily available and a friend or family member helping with logistics can go a long way. This is especially true when there are long waitlists and many different types of practitioners.

Our matching tool helps narrow down the selection of psychologists based on your friend's needs and their schedule - this is a great starting point to share with anyone feeling overwhelmed by the process.

Cost can also be a barrier to seeking support. Did you know Australians have access to medicare rebates for psychology sessions? Your friend will need an appointment with a GP to obtain a referral letter and mental healthcare plan to access rebates - read more in our medicare rebates page.

With My Mirror your friends can access rebated sessions from $108 (after Medicare rebates) and with our support a friend offer they will benefit from an extra $25 off their first session. Simply share code friend25 - the code must be applied at checkout when booking each session. See terms and conditions

Brillant service

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.

Great help

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.

No wait lists

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.

Well suited to my needs

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.
