OUR STORY

Why we started

At Oqea Cares, we understand that seeking mental health help can be a difficult and overwhelming journey. It is hard to know where to start, or what type of help you may need. Furthermore, recovery and wellness often involves many people around the person seeking care: family, friends, and a number of different health care professionals that play a part at different stages.

That’s why we provide mental health support through an integrated psychiatric, psychological and allied mental health care approach, connecting to all those personally involved in an individual’s care together.

We recognise that a person seeking help – you, a family member or a friend – is the centre of their personal mental health and wellbeing journey, and with access to a range of clinical programs that could better suit their lifestyle and needs, an individual can be empowered through a plan of care that they shape – with our guidance.

Our difference

Oqea Cares offers a range of clinical programs by psychologists and psychiatrists so you can access -the support you need, but with a difference.

Unlike other practices, at Oqea Cares, you’re not just a patient. We put you at the centre of your health and wellbeing journey by empowering you with the tools to personalise your care, monitor your progress to recovery and drive your own path forward.

Powered by our world-class Oqea platform, you can connect and communicate directly with your clinician, and:

  • Invite others to join your support team: this could be your family and your General Practitioner, and other allied healthcare professionals on the Oqea network.
  • Undertake daily wellbeing checks
  • Receive targeted resources on wellbeing focus areas you select
  • Set personal wellbeing goals
  • Join group conversation to keep connected

Anxiety

Anxiety is a common and natural emotional response to stress or perceived threats. It manifests as feelings of worry, fear, or unease, often accompanied by physical symptoms like increased heart rate, trembling, or sweating. While occasional anxiety is normal, excessive or persistent anxiety that interferes with daily life may indicate an anxiety disorder.
