FAQs

Staying Ahead is an online self-care program that’s personalised for you.

To start the program you answer some questions about yourself in our Wellbeing Check-in.

The Check-in helps us understand what you’re already doing to care for your wellbeing, and the areas which can help you improve how you feel.

We map your answers to mental health research and recommend a program of six priority self-care modules that are personalised to you.

You then complete a 10-minute module each week for six weeks that teaches you simple strategies that you can practice to strengthen your wellbeing.

Staying Ahead is designed to strengthen everyone’s mental wellbeing, but it’s especially useful for people facing stress or adversity in their life right now.

The skills you learn in the program can stop a tough time from turning into a mental health condition like depression or anxiety.

This wellbeing program is not suitable for people under 18 years or those experiencing significant distress (see Further support).

Staying Ahead has been developed by mental health professionals using the latest research for what works to promote mental wellbeing and prevent mental health conditions.

Staying Ahead is about keeping things simple. Nothing complicated or time consuming, just practical strategies that research has shown to work across 4 key action areas: Lifestyle, Mindset, Connection, Direction.

Yes. But it should not be a replacement for seeking mental health support from a health professional (see Further support).

Staying Ahead is a self-care program to promote mental wellbeing. It is not a treatment or support program for people experiencing mental health conditions.  

Staying Ahead is an online program you complete whenever it suits you. If you think you need more support, you are encouraged to check out our Further support page.
