An Investigation of Digital Mental Health Interventions

About this study

If you are currently using a digital mental health intervention, such as via a phone, the internet, or another electronic device, you can help further research by taking part in a short 20-30 minute survey. Digital interventions for mental health are those that are delivered via electronic means, such as with mobile phone Apps, programs delivered over the internet, or chat, telephone, or videoconference counselling. These may be structured interventions for a particular problem (e.g. anxiety or depression) or they may also help you with developing a particular skill (e.g. mindfulness or meditation). Participation in this research will help us to understand individuals' perceptions and use of digital mental health interventions, in order to best tailor and improve these services and interventions.
