Abstract

Computerized cognitive-behaviour therapy (CCBT) programmes have been developed to help meet the enormous need for evidence-based psychological treatment of common mental health problems in the context of a severe shortage of trained therapists to meet that need. Randomized controlled trials have confirmed the efficacy of such programmes. We present the experience of a community mental health team (CMHT) resource centre with one such programme, Beating the Blues, together with outcome data on a small sample of its clients. We conclude that experience and data, taken together, demonstrate the practical benefits of CCBT in routine practice.
