Webinar 8 AHP: Using digital mental health tools to enhance your practice
Digital mental health (DMH) tools and resources are increasingly available in mental health services in Australia and other developed countries. It is hoped that they will help increase access to services, both as lower intensity interventions as well as in combination with higher intensity traditional therapy interventions.
The range of available tools is becoming more comprehensive and a good evidence base has been built up for some types of interventions such as online programs. There is now increasing interest in exploring how these tools can best be incorporated into the daily work of practitioners.In this webinar
This webinar is designed to provide an overview of the main types and uses of digital mental health resources available in Australia and suggests ways that practitioners can find and evaluate appropriate tools.
Practitioners may also like to participate in the second webinar of this series, which provides a closer examination of how these resources can be blended into existing services and practice.Summary
