Abstract

Background: There has been little research examining attitudes towards computerised therapy in young people. Method: A self-report survey of 37 young people and 31 parents using Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). Results: Young people reported high levels of computer usage and online help-seeking behaviour. Young people were cautious about computerised therapy whereas parents were more positive, identifying more benefits than concerns. Conclusions: Mental health professionals need to be aware of young people's online help-seeking behaviour in order to correct inaccuracies and maximise uptake of computerised therapy.
