Designing online support for families living with depression.

Stjernswärd, Sigrid LU (2009)
Abstract
Families living with mental illness experience an added burden and may experience such psychological distress that they require therapeutic intervention. The Internet is used as a daily tool by a growing share of the population worldwide, including for health related matters. Its potential as a health care tool, including advantages and drawbacks, should be explored. The overall aim of the present thesis was to explore the relatives’ experiences of living close to a person with depression and the Internet’s potential to address their needs.
