Helping people to help themselves
The Interactive Well-Being Lab at the University of Sussex studies how people use interactive and online mental health information and self-help programs for common mental health problems and the impact of guided self-help programs on well-being.
We are running a number of projects exploring the development and delivery of computer-aided therapies in mental health, with a particular interest in the factors influencing the uptake, engagement and completion of empirically supported computer-aided therapy programs.
We hope to use what we learn from our research to help inform the development and delivery of better treatment options for common mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and insomnia.
The Interactive Well-Being Lab is part of the Clinical and Developmental research group at the University of Sussex.
