MoodGYM is a free Internet-based self-help program that teaches cognitive behavioral skills. It consists of 5 interactive modules that use diagrams and online exercises. It demonstrates the relationship between thoughts and emotions, examines issues related to stress and to relationships, and teaches relaxation and meditation techniques. It also includes sections on managing relationships and problem solving. Participants are encouraged to work their way through each of the 5 modules, 1 module per week, but are able to work at their own pace. The program includes an online workbook with 29 online exercises to help promote mental health.
MoodGYM was designed and developed by staff at the Centre for Mental Health Research at The Australian National University, including researchers, mental health experts, web and graphic designers, and software engineers.
