It’s normal to feel fatigued or overwhelmed sometimes, and it’s important to find ways to manage that stress and worry at a pace that suits you.
myCompass is a free online tool that can help you identify unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and learn strategies to deal with them.
There are no hidden costs and it is backed by research.
myCompass offers a personalised experience and can recommend learning activities that best match your needs.
Alternatively, you can select from fourteen learning activities that most interest you.
The myCompass mood tracking features allows you to track your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours in four areas – depression, anxiety, stress, and sleep. It provides graphical feedback to better recognise the patterns and triggers that impact your mental health, both positively and negatively.
The learning activities deliver proven psychological techniques used by doctors and psychologists such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
If symptoms persist, worsen or change unexpectedly, always speak to your health professional.
Requiring minimal technical skills, myCompass is for people who:
Diabetes is a common disease, and rates of depressive symptoms in people living with diabetes are two to three times higher than in the general population. With the support of the RACGP Foundation and Diabetes Australia, myCompass has developed a specific online learning activity aimed at helping people balance the demands of diabetes with other important life goals. Called ‘Doing what really counts’, this activity is accessible to all users of myCompass.
myCompass received funding from Beyond Blue and the Movember Foundation to develop a specific online learning activity for men with mild-to-moderate depressive symptoms. Called ‘Managing depression for men’, this activity is accessible to all myCompass users who identify as male.
