E-Mental Health Summit in Amsterdam

E-Mental Health

The first E-Mental Health Summit will be held in The Netherlands in Amsterdam. You can find the programme on the E-Mental Health website.

The 4th ISRII Meeting will be held specially for members of the International Society for Research on Internet Interventions. This meeting will be chaired by Prof Dr Pim Cuijpers. His name might be familiar to you because I often discuss his work on my blog.
Some suitable examples: Self-Help Treatment for Depressive symptoms, which is the best? and Screening Adolescents for Depression on the Internet.

Besides this meeting, the results of the most recent evidence-based developments, research studies and implementation projects in the field of e-mental health will be presented by other prominent international experts. Important discussions will focus on solutions to raising treatment adherence and extending the reach of cost-effective web-based prevention and treatment.

The presentations will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR).

Below you will find a number of recently published articles by authors who will present a paper at our conference.
