e-Mental health
A guide for GPs

The term e-mental health refers to the use of the internet and related technologies to deliver mental health information, services and care. e-Mental health interventions are effective for use in the management of mild to moderate depression and anxiety, and can be disseminated in the primary care setting.  

The RACGP has developed e-Mental health: A guide for GPs to assist you in using e-mental health interventions with your patients when it is safe to do so. The Guide is designed to provide an introduction to the field of e-mental health, direct you to key online resources for you and your patients, and help you to decide how to use e-mental health in your practice.

This resource was developed with funding and support from Black Dog Institute as part of e-Mental Health in Practice (eMHPrac), an initiative funded by the Australian Government.
