Abstract

Online delivery of public health interventions is on the rise and for good reason. Roughly 2.3 billion people across the globe are online [1] and many are using it as a resource for health-related information [2,3]. This has promoted a shift in many consumers from passive recipients to active participants in managing their own health [4,5]. Practitioners have been quick to recognize the promise of the internet as a vehicle for disseminating health-saving messages [6] and studies assessing online interventions have concluded that they work [7-12]. However, what has not been appropriately assessed is the degree to which online interventions reach and influence vulnerable sub-groups, such as those with mental disorders.
