I am compiling some recognized, reputable, free or affordable, evidence-based Internet-based programs that individuals can use to get treatment for mental health without seeking out a therapist, which may be a scarce resource in their local community–or, may be an unaffordable option.
These sites are worth visiting, and by the way, I have no personal, financial, or other interest in any of these programs; I just know they have worked for several of my clients, now.
I have recently posted on the use of the Internet as a part of the new Digital Age for psychiatry, and so this post is the natural follow-on.
For depression: Mood Gym
For anxiety, stress: Ecouch
For insomnia: Shut-i
A recent article released on JAMA Psychiatry this week adds to the support for Shut-i.
