About this book

This book describes the use of telecommunication technologies to provide mental health services to individuals in communities or locations that are underserviced, typically as a result of their geographic isolation or due to cultural and/or linguistic barriers.

The potential of the e-Mental Health approach is demonstrated in various mental health settings by describing concrete clinical examples and applications involving novel strategies for employing technology. Further, the book presents an approach to cooperation on a global level based on the exchange of expertise and knowledge across national boundaries.

The target audience includes mental health workers (clinicians and staff members), medical and nursing students, academic researchers, technology professionals and health care policy makers.

Reviews

“This work is meant to educate those unfamiliar with advances in mental health treatment using telecommunications, as well as to inform those already working in these environments with these technologies about the most recent evidence-based practices. … This book provides a succinct summary of what e-mental health is, and what it has the possibility to become. … its contents are valuable and thought-provoking.” (Steven T. Herron, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2016)
