In this webinar

This on-demand webinar is the first in a series of stand-alone webinars that will introduce and explore the concept of e-Mental Health.  This webinar explores online programs suitable for a teenager with a developing mood disorder. We engage with an e-Mental Health expert, a psychologist and a GP panel member to discuss the programs' benefits for both GP and patient.

The webinar series

The webinar series examines some of the online mental health treatment programs that GPs need to know about, focusing on evidence-based programs that have been developed in Australia. The evidence around the efficacy and usefulness of different programs will be discussed along with practical aspects of using the programs. We will use a case example to help explore the range of reliable Australian online resources available to help doctors improve outcomes for patients with mental health conditions.

Summary:

  • e-Mental Health programs are a useful adjunct to mental health treatment in primary care
  • there is good evidence that patient outcomes improve with the use of e-Mental Health programs
  • a variety of locally-developed e-Mental Health programs are available
  • GPs need to be familiar with the programs their patients are using and be able to recommend the use of these programs appropriately.

Audience

GPs and GP registrars who are interested in improving outcomes for patients with mental health conditions.
