Mental Health Services
The Low Intensity service provides a free short term intensive program that focuses on low intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in the form of guided self-help and practical strategies over a six session basis. It is suitable for people with reactive symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, often following events such as:
- Major life changes
- Work or study pressure
- Financial pressure
- Work/life balance
The program is delivered by a Coach who is specially trained to deliver the model and they receive supervision from mental health professionals.
The program is provided by Woden Community Service at north and south sites in Canberra. Appointments can be delivered in person or over the phone, however the initial appointment is usually delivered in person.
The low intensity service is available to individuals who:
- live/work/study in the ACT
- aged 16 years and over

There are two options for referral:
