Depression is an increasingly challenging condition, especially among older people.  To address the issue, the Australian Government created Beyond Blue – a national depression initiative, whose mission is to provide a national focus and community leadership to increase the capacity of the broader Australian community to prevent depression and respond effectively.

They have recently created a program of on-line e-therapy as a way for individuals to reach out and get help if they are suffering with depression or anxiety.     This is a good example of creative use of the internet for health care.
