E-Mental Health Case Scenarios & FAQs: Building Capacity for Digital Health Services

Purpose

Part of the Toolkit for E-Mental Health Implementation

Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions and is the fourth leading contributor to the global burden of disease and disability worldwide.

Patient interest in using mobile apps for mental health care is growing. Patients are now able to use apps to track symptoms (e.g., mood diary), access social support (e.g., online2 support group), and target symptom relief techniques (e.g., breathing and relaxation).
