e-Mental Health

E-mental health refers to mental health services and information that are delivered, or enhanced, through the Internet and related technologies. This new and rapidly developing field lies at the intersection of both mental health and technology, and has become an important area of research focus.

The group has developed walkalong.ca, a web-portal to empower youth and young people. The site continues to be expanded and developed, both as an invaluable youth resource and an important research tool. Other projects include: development and evaluation of an online trauma platform, research into the impact of social media, and the integration of online tools into existing services.
