Developing effective, accessible and free psychological treatments ...


The eCentreClinic is a not-for-profit initiative of Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. We comprise a team of psychologists, psychiatrists, and research staff.

The eCentreClinic is a specialised research clinic that develops and tests state-of-the-art free online treatment Courses for people with symptoms of worry, panic, social anxiety, OCD, PTSD, stress, depression, low mood and other health conditions including chronic pain. We built the eCentreClinic because millions of Australian adults suffer with these symptoms and conditions each year. But, most do not seek help or see a mental health professional. We believe that people have a right to helpful information and to know about practical, proven, skills that help. We hope that by providing this information and supporting people to learn these skills via the internet more people will learn to master their symptoms and conditions. By doing this we hope they will also improve their quality of life and that of their families and communities.

To date we have developed more than 15 different treatment Courses, conducted more than 40 clinical trials and offered free treatment to more than 4,000 Australians from across Australia. Every person who participates in a eCentreClinic Course is asked to participate in a research trial that evaluates and improves that course. We publish the overall results of each of these research trials. This means that other research teams around Australia and around the world can learn from our experience and the feedback of participants in our trials. We hope that this means these kinds of treatment Courses will continue to be improved and will become more and more freely available.
