What is #MentalHealthWarrior?

Mentalhealthwarrior is Virtual Psychologist’s youth and student program. It is targeted towards people aged 15 to 24, with a primary focus on engaging those who would not normally reach out for mental health support. We have found, through extensive research and 5 years of engagement, the youth prefer text-based counselling over all other channels. Further, the University of Western Sydney, in collaboration with the MARCs institute, have found that text-based counselling is an effective means of support, and can provide a good predictor for depression and anxiety. 

We believe that utilising text as a means to engage the youth that wouldn’t normally reach out, can only have a positive impact on their development, education, and relationships both at school and home. Our Mentalhealthwarrior program has already helped hundreds of youth across NSW through our Headspace initiative and we now want to share our success with Queensland.
