His vision to make innovative mental health treatments more accessible has led Assoc/Prof Galambos to introduce cutting edge services such as MRI-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), scent-augmented virtual reality to Uspace and digital mental health platform. To develop this suite of innovative services, Assoc/Prof Galambos founded MindSkiller®️, a digital mental health service, to rapidly enhance mental health care in response to growing demand and to address the need for more sophisticated mental health education and innovation. MindSkiller will play a key role in connecting help-seekers with primary care, specialist, allied health and peer support help-providers, as well as mental health organisations and services.
