During the Australasian Doctors’ Health Conference 2023, we were lucky to have The Essential Network (TEN) for health professionals present.
This is a confidential, free resource for all health professionals – completely separate from colleges and employers.
Designed by health professionals, for health professionals, TEN makes accessing support quick, easy and confidential (run via The Black Dog Institute).
This e-health hub gives you access to a network of support including:
- self-guided mental health check-up
- connection to one-on-one clinical care, with up to five free telehealth sessions with a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist through Black Dog Institute’s TEN Clinic
- evidence-based tools and resources
- peer support
- digital mental health programs including TEN’s Navigating Burnout program
If you’re looking for extra support, or just to do a self check-up on their online quiz, take a look at their website. Or refer a friend!
You don’t need to go it alone, there are systems out there designed to help you. And they really do care.
