הנושא: Approaches to Supporting Mental Health Online: User Focussed and Ethical Issues


This seminar will discuss a long-term project developing online support for young people with depression and psychosis and the people who care for them.
In an environment where public funding for face-to-face psychological care is decreasing, governments and health providers are looking for online solutions to solve the increasing challenge of mental illness. However, while there are thousands of online mental health apps available, very few are clinically tested or have been shown to support adherence. This seminar will address appropriate design strategies for creating useable online services to support mental health as well as the ethical issues that information systems researchers face when working in the mental health domain.
