Online depression fix has big impact (ANU research)

Online depression therapy programs can have a positive impact on more than just depressive symptoms, a new study from The Australian National University reveals.

Dr Lou Farrer, from the ANU Centre for Mental Health Research, part of the ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment, trialled the effectiveness of online programs MoodGYM and BluePages with users of Lifeline’s telephone crisis line. She found that the online programs had a positive influence across a range of problems – not just depression.
