UON eCliPSE is a free site available to all students at UON that can help students to access clinically proven online programs to tackle issues such as depression, anxiety and drug and alcohol use.

eCliPSE has been developed in conjunction with NSW Health and the University of New South Wales, and modified here with assistance from staff at Student Care and Equity at the University of Newcastle to suit the needs of the University of Newcastle student community. The eCliPSE resources have all been developed, tested and found to be effective here in Australia.

There are currently four programs available:

  • “Healthy Lifestyles” – a 4 module program to help you reduce or quit smoking and improve your health through healthy diet and exercise
  • “Breaking the ICE” – a brief online program to help people who use stimulants reflect on their use and make changes in their life
  • “SHADE” – a 10-week program designed to help people experiencing depressive symptoms and who are drinking alcohol or using other drugs
  • “The DEAL Project” – a 4-week program designed for young people with depression and concerns about alcohol use.

If you are interested in accessing these tools by yourself, you can follow the link to sign up to eCliPSE .

Alternatively, UON offers the option of completing the online programs with the assistance of a clinician. If you are interested in this option, please contact us via e-mail for more information.
