Online CBT and Self Help for Depression and Anxiety

How do we help people who do not engage with mental health services because of barriers like cost, geographic distance or even shame? And what about people who want to do things themselves and choose not to engage? 

I was Principal Investigator on this research into over 600 people's experiences doing online CBT and self help and over 40 staff's perspectives on referring and delivering this service.

I was privileged to put together the first professional Warmline as a peer support helpline service.
