Resumen

The purpose of this study was to (1) evaluate the characteristics of website users in relation to their depressive symptoms and (2) pilot test the effectiveness of the depressive symptoms management program. Computer-assisted intervention is as effective as face-to-face treatment for managing depressive symptoms, which are one of the most common and destructive mental problems. This kind of system can be particularly useful in Korea where stigmatism exists for those who seek mental health care. Investigators developed a web site for depressive symptoms management (URL: http://www.baejy.com/smile) in 2004. During the first year the number of users was 582. The findings from this study will provide an intervention strategy for the prevention and management of depression.
