Online therapy in Perth

Online therapy in Perth is becoming more common as the world becomes more connected.

Online therapists help those who may feel anxious about meeting face to face in a therapist’s room, those who can’t afford offline therapy or those that simply prefer the convenience and anonymity of online counselling and psychotherapy.

The world of online counselling is vast, but many people are still unconvinced about the validity of online therapy, with some feeling that it is not real therapy.

However, there are plenty of therapists who can provide solid support and guidance through your issues via Skype or other messaging apps.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Mental Health in Perth

If nothing else, the statistics show that mental health issues are prevalent in Perth. There’s a lot of misinformation about mental health conditions. For example, most teens incorrectly believe that there is a “cure” for mental illness. In reality, the most effective treatments for most types of mental illnesses are not cures but rather control mechanisms that help people manage their illnesses and improve their quality of life over time.

In response to the need for accurate information about mental illnesses and effective treatments, NAMI developed a range of educational materials for youth, families, and friends of those with mental illness. The NAMI Basics program includes courses on depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders including OCD and PTSD, as well as introductory courses on what it is like to live with mental illness and the medications used to treat mental disorders.

NAMI’s free educational materials are available for download or can be ordered free of charge in hard copy. Right now, Course 4 on anxiety disorders including PTSD is available as a sample course (PDF file).

Mental health statistics indicate that one-in-five adults experience some form of mental illness during any given year.


One-third of adolescents have had an anxiety disorder by age 18; one-half will suffer from an anxiety disorder before they reach their mid-20s. One out of every five children experiences severe emotional disturbances at some point during childhood and adolescence.

At least 50% of all individuals living with schizophrenia are not being treated for their illness. Also, an estimated 3 million Americans have schizophrenia – that’s more than the combined population of Atlanta, St. Louis, and Salt Lake City.
