Welcome to IBDclinic.org.au

IBDclinic.org.au is an online mental health service offering information, assessment, and online treatment programs ("eTherapy") for anxiety and/or depression for individuals with diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This website and its intervention programs are free and available to all individuals with IBD and also any health provider to use with their patients.

There are two 6-week IBD-focused psychological treatment programs. After an initial assessment, participants will have the option to undertake either a depression-focused treatment program or an anxiety-focused treatment program. Each program will also include:

  • Stress management strategies utilising mindfulness and guided imagery
  • Strategies to identify and address psychological patterns known to impact IBD symptoms
  • Strategies to help reduce rumination and ongoing distress   

The 6-week treatment programs are designed to help individuals with low-to-moderate levels of anxiety and/or depression.
