Mental Health and Wellness

Know you’re not alone

Changing the lives of thousands of Australians

Since 2019, our mental health and wellness programs have changed the lives of more than 9,000 Australians otherwise struggling with conditions like PTSD, depression, anxiety, sleep, anger issues, addiction and relationship troubles. 

Programs that truly make a difference

We know that downloading an app (you’ll probably never use) won’t create the kind of changes that matter. That’s why our focus has always been on the multiple benefits that come from combining evidence-based mindfulness practices with ongoing psychological support.

More than 35 years experience

All our programs include either telehealth or onsite access to our experienced and caring registered psychologists, as well as daily access to mindfulness practices like yoga, meditation, breathing exercises and more. With more than 100 years of combined experience and a team of more than 50 practitioners, we’re also one of the largest providers in the country.

Leading the way with industry-first partnerships

In 2022, we partnered with the leading mental wellness brand and #1 app for sleep, meditation and relaxation, Calm. Designed to help users manage stress, sleep better and live a happier, healthier life, clients from all our programs now have access to hundreds of hours of original audio content available in seven languages through the Calm app — an Australian industry first!

What our clients are saying about Body & Mind’s Programs

Feeling more Alive

I’ve been in other mindfulness programs and learnt the strategies but had forgotten to utilise them. With this program not only have I learnt new strategies but remembered the old ones, and with the telephone conference with a psychologist, I am now heading to a better place and feeling more alive than I have in along time.

Nathan G.

Enormous Value

The program has provided the tools necessary to reframe the turbulence and pressures faced in my life. Family, service life, minimal ‘self care’ time and self-driven high performance expectations were slowly killing me and any chance of contentment. I’ve found the yoga, daily mindfulness audio clips and weekly 15-min chats with a psychologist to be of enormous value.

Brett D.

Amazing tools to help with mental load

I love how all the programs are online and allow me to do whatever class I feel like, at whatever time suits me and my family. Having all of these amazing tools to help with the mental load of (what we all endure) everyday, has been needed and a great help.

Katherine B

Helps Me Feel Safe

The mindfulness programs and the fact that I can access a personal psychologist has helped me immensely. Having the call each week and to be able to have more if I need it has helped me to feel safe. I’m thankful that I have access to it and highly recommend it to all.

Warrick H.

Peace of Mind

Having a psychologist contact me weekly, sometimes twice a week has been a godsend. Especially in tough times when I’ve not been able to get in to see someone face to face, I’ve had peace of mind that I will get a call from my psychologist. The benefits are unmeasurable.
