The Wellbeing Plus Course is a free online and internet-delivered treatment program designed for adults 60 years and older. It aims to teach practical, proven, skills for managing symptoms of stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. We developed the Wellbeing Plus Course because many older adults have difficulties with stress, anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. But, few people have access to or seek treatment.

The eCentreClinic partnered with beyondblue to develop the Wellbeing Plus Course. Importantly, this course is very similar to our other Courses but also targets issues relevant to older adults including changing roles, changes in health and maintaining independence. The Wellbeing Plus Course aims to help mature adults understand and manage symptoms of worry, stress, and low mood and to improve their overall wellbeing. The aim of the Course is to support adults to learn practical skills for managing these symptoms so that they can get back to leading an enjoyable and rewarding life.

The Wellbeing Plus Course is delivered over 8 weeks and is designed to provide you with practical information and practical, proven, skills for managing symptoms of different types of anxiety, worry, low mood and depression. The Course aims to provide the information and skills that you would normally receive from a Clinical Psychologist.

The Wellbeing Plus Course has been carefully designed to work with both regular clinician support as well as in self-guided formats.

Our Research Results

We have now had several thousand older adults complete the Wellbeing Plus Course and the results have been very encouraging. More than 90% reported the Course was worth their time and that they would recommend the course. Most also make very good improvements in their emotional wellbeing as a result of participating in the course. But, the course is hard work and takes time to be helpful..

You can find out more about our research results by looking at our Research Page, HERE. There is a specific section on the Wellbeing Plus Course.
