Moderated Online Social Therapy
Connecting young Victorians with enhanced digital mental health care
In response to the COVID-19 crisis in 2020, Orygen Digital’s Moderated Online Social Therapy (MOST) platform is generously supported by a $6m grant from the Victorian Government to fast track its roll-out across the state, and a $1m grant from the Telstra Foundation to iterate and improve the MOST technology platform.
MOST was launched on 13 July, 2020 by the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister for Mental Health Martin Foley. Read the press release.
If you’re aged between 15 and 25, you can access MOST through a participating Victorian headspace centre or youth specialist mental health service.
MOST integrates with and improves existing youth mental health services
MOST is the first digital solution to offer continuous, integrated face-to-face and digital care to young people. MOST provides services and clinicians with evidence-based tools that can be used across the mental health diagnostic and severity spectrum and all stages of treatment.
MOST is staffed by professionals
With young people empowered at the centre of the model, MOST offers wrap-around support from: online peer workers, online clinicians and vocational support workers, and face-to-face clinicians.
Changing the way we deliver support.
We’ve used a decade of young people’s feedback and usage data to ensure every component captures young people’s imaginations and feels relevant to their daily lives.
Including MOST in treatment plans will:
- reduce wait list times, visits to emergency services and relapse rates;
- improve vocational outcomes and social connection;
- improve support for clinicians to engage young people before, between and after their sessions; and
- provide greater access for young people to high-quality, engaging, and evidence-based support after ceasing formal sessions.

MOST provides young people with a range of features
I think it is truly life changing. Having so many options to get help all in the one place is amazing. It’s so valuable having an infinite amount of resources and I love how you can chat with the peer moderators who are always so lovely and supporting and interested in you
