Victorian Counseling and Psychological Services
This project aimed to reduce mental health stigma in regional Australia by helping develop Victorian Counselling and Psychological Services’ telecommunication service, Chinwag. The team of Worcester Polytechnic Institute students interviewed and surveyed individuals in regional areas of Australia to determine how to increase awareness of Chinwag. The differences between regional and metropolitan Australians were analyzed and summarized in a report. In addition, a website, an informational video, and a social media campaign were created for Chinwag in order to improve prospective clients’ access to mental health care services in regional Australia.
