About Us


The Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression (CRUfAD) is a facility of the University of New South Wales and St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, established to reduce the impact of anxiety and depressive disorders on individuals and the community. It comprises the Anxiety Disorders Clinic, This Way Up and Virtual Clinic.

 The Anxiety Disorders Clinic

The Anxiety Disorders Clinic, part of CRUfAD, is a specialist clinic that provides assessment and treatment for adults with anxiety and depressive disorders. Treatment at the clinic involves Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), with both face-to-face therapy and iCBT (online courses) prescribed. 

Clinical psychologists work alongside two psychiatry registrars and the consultant psychiatrist. Intake assessments to determine diagnosis and the suitability of our programs for the patient are conducted by consultant psychiatrists and the senior psychiatry registrar. 

There is no fee for the initial assessment or face-to-face treatment at our clinic.

This Way Up

This Way Up provides effective, proven online programs for anxiety and depression. Mental Health professionals can prescribe programs to their patients and supervise them as they work through the lessons, or recommend patients take the self-help programs. There is a one-off, small fee to complete our online treatment programs. 

Virtual Clinic

The Virtual Clinic conducts research into treatment programs. Please see our website for our current research trials.


The Anxiety Disorders Clinic: Patients require a referral letter from their GP before calling the clinic to book an assessment.

This Way Up: Register and enrol in an online course via the This Way Up website.
