Guest Post: Guidelines for use of Web 2.0 in depression

Hi All

My name is Susanne Doddrell and I am the Quality Coordinator for Lifeline Aotearoa.

We have a fantastic website at www.thelowdown.co.nz which provides info and support for young people in relation to Depression. We also operate a message board open to postings. In this forum we aim to foster and encourage an environment of hopefulness around depression, with information, questions, stories and support from service users and their peers.

What I am interested in is any research on best/good practice guidelines with reference to message board moderation in the area of mental health. Is this something that you can help with, or know of anything/anyone that I may be able to access to obtain this information. Our service is currently developing guidelines, and I am finding it difficult to locate literature specifically related to this.

If this is something that you are able to help with, or even direct me in the appropriate direction, it would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Susanne Doddrell
