Many patients with psychological and mental health problems do not get the help they need. Early and appropriate intervention at a primary care level can improve quality of life and even save lives.
eMH resources help primary care practitioners match the level of care to the severity of illness. They can ensure that people, who would not otherwise get help, have the best chance of recovery.
Stepped care in mental health means matching the intensity of treatment to the severity of the condition. One important option for care in mild to moderate mental health conditions (such as anxiety, depression and stress-related conditions) is self-help delivered online, with or without professional guidance (eMH).
