The dNet Centres Project is an exciting strategy that will:
increase the level of service and benefits available through depressioNet.com.au
ensure that many more people living with depression receive these benefits
secure the long term financial sustainability of depressioNet.
The dNet Centres Project consists of the creation of new online 'dNet Centres', each of which mirrors the depressioNet.com.au
internet site and service and is specifically designed to meet the needs of a particular segment of the community.
For example, the dNet Work Centre will be at depressioNet.com.au/dNetWork.html and will link from the
depressioNet.com.au home page - as will all the dNet Centres.
Each of the individual dNet Centres is the result of listening to the needs of individuals within a particular segment and
working with key stakeholders within the segment.
At the end of the 3 years we will have (in conjunction with the relevant stakeholders) developed, launched, reviewed,
implemented improvements, conducted formal evaluation and documented the 'dNet Centres Model'.
This model will be easily mapped
onto other areas of Health and showcased internationally as an extremely efficient and effective model for increasing the
health and wellbeing of the people - by the people.
Importantly, we will also have a strong evidence base for the value of depressioNet for the individual, for companies and organisations
which will benefit financially from the significant benefits provided to their staff, customers, etc.
This will assist depressioNet in engaging long term, secure partnerships based on the provision of services of value and
hence ensure the financial sustainability of the core service and all the additional benefits depressioNet will be able to provide to
people living with depression.
The dNet Centres project will enable depressioNet to improve the
benefits to all who live with depression and ensure even more Australians receive these benefits.
