Abstract: (Show)
Traditional clinic-based service delivery systems remain inaccessible to many Australians with mental health problems.If we are to substantially reduce the burden of mental illness, we need to develop more accessible, empowering and sustainable models of mental health care. E-health technologies have specific efficiencies and advantages in the domains of health promotion, prevention, early intervention and prolonged treatment.It is timely to use the best features of these technologies to start to build a more responsive and efficient mental health care system.
