How LGBT+ Young People Use the Internet in Relation to Their Mental Health and Envisage the Use of e-Therapy

Exploratory Study

About the Course:

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth and other young people who are diverse in terms of their sexuality and gender (LGBT+) are at an elevated risk of mental health problems such as depression. Factors such as isolation and stigma mean that accessing mental health services can be particularly challenging for LGBT+ young people, and previous studies have highlighted that many prefer to access psychological support on the Web. Research from New Zealand has demonstrated promising effectiveness and acceptability for an LGBT+ focused, serious game–based, computerized cognitive behavioral therapy program. However, there has been limited research conducted in the area of electronic therapy (e-therapy) for LGBT+ people.
