Brisbane South

Artius is an approved provider for Brisbane South PHN Low Intensity Psychological Services.

Mental health in Australia is changing direction with a greater focus on ensuring that client services better meet client needs in local regions. This new system is called “Stepped Care”.

The Artius Feeling Better Program is a part of the low intensive services in the Stepped Care model. The program is specifically designed for clients who might be finding things a little hard to deal with or feel mildly frustrated or anxious; but not to the extent that it is interfering with their day-to-day functioning or they think it needs long term therapy.

Artius is one of the first organisations in Brisbane to offer Low Intensity Services. Our Low Intensity Psychological Services in the Brisbane South region are aimed at improving the well-being of those clients who are feeling mildly stressed, unhappy or anxious.
This brief evidence-based program offers eligible clients 6 x 30-minute sessions over the course of six weeks at no cost. Sessions can be by telephone, face-to-face or group. All sessions are conducted by fully trained mental health specialists.

Content of the program is based on Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and includes a large range of helpful strategies such as:

  • Developing a toolbox of techniques to improve mood and better deal with day-to-day road blocks
  • Understanding the link between thoughts, feelings and behaviour
  • Learning more effective coping behaviours
  • Developing skills for better managing emotions
  • Addressing ways of dealing with unhelpful thinking
  • Learning ways to keep improvement going and avoid falling back into unhelpful habits

Before starting the program, every client will have a 30 minute interview to help Artius better understand their current problems and goals so that they are provided with the best service and positive outcomes.
