E-mental health preferences of Veterans with and without probable posttraumatic stress disorder

Julia M. Whealin, PhD, et al.

A number of electronic services that promote mental health, called e-mental health services, are being disseminated by the Veterans Health Administration and other private and public agencies. This study sought to understand willingness to use e-mental health services???ranging from smartphone applications to video teleconferencing???among Veterans in Hawaii. Results found that, compared with their peers, Veterans who screened positive for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were less willing to use each type of e-mental health service, despite a greater desire for mental health services. Our results support the need for a better understanding of Veterans??? emental health needs, particularly among Veterans with PTSD.
