Rhonda WILSON (Editor)

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

This chapter introduces students in the health professions to a new and developing area of mental health practice: e-mental health. It describes a range of digital interventions and explores how digital and mobile technologies are providing additional avenues for helping people with mental health problems in a densely populated and hard-to-reach communities. It is important for practitioners to acquire and develop proficient digital literacy skills in the e-mental health service sector. Some types of digital and mobile interventions are considered, along with some of the benefits and limitations that relate to e-mental health in general. As emerging health care professionals, students increasingly will be expected to utilise e-health interventions and strategies in the delivery of health care. The chapter introduces the e-mental health environment in general, and helps students to develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement person-centred e-mental health care to individuals and populations.
