About TEN: The Essential Network
TEN – The Essential Network is a multifaceted e-health hub

The website and mobile app developed by health professionals for health professionals as part of the Australian government’s COVID-19 response. It offers specialist, individualised mental health advice and triaged support to connect health workers to the help they need when they need it the most. ​

For the first time, leaders in mental health, public health, clinical peer support, and technology – Black Dog Institute, University of New South Wales, University of Melbourne, This Way Up, RANZCP, The Hand-n-Hand Network, APS and SAS– have joined together to take the guesswork and effort out of accessing mental health care for these essential workers.

  • self guided mental health screening
  • evidence-based tools and resources
  • peer support
