If you have mental health issues but can’t afford (or make time for) one-on-one therapy, there are many alternate options that can still put you in touch with a licensed therapist. There’s also a wealth of self-care resources that can supplement therapy.
Writer Tiffany Howard presents a list of them in this Twitter thread — here’s the thread reformatted as an easy-to-read list.
A few of these resources are only available overseas, such as the Open Path Psychotherapy Collective, but many are available to Australians, including secular self-help organisation Recovery International. Australia’s MindSpot is also listed.
Howard further links to a few mental-health podcasts and online forms of therapy, such as Better Help’s directory of online therapists.
Also look through Greatist’s list of 81 affordable mental health resources.
