So I found a couple of interesting links today regarding depression and anxiety.

E-couch "provides information about emotional problems - what causes them, how to prevent them and how to treat them. It includes exercises to help you understand yourself and others better. Even better, it provides you with a set of strategies that might help you to improve your life" and "is co-funded by Australia's beyondblue: the national depression initiative and the Centre for Mental Health Research at the Australian National University."

MoodGym, a sister site of e-couch, claims to "deliver cognitive behaviour therapy
for preventing depression."

Has anyone heard anything about them? I'm especially looking at you, aussies-on-my-flist. I've seen a couple online comments from people who say they definitely do get something out of it. Anyway, I signed up for e-couch so far. They ask you to take a couple of short quizzes to help determine your anxiety and depression levels. I thought it was interesting. Will update if I actually find them useful.
