Ms Scheibmair investigated the acceptability and effectiveness of a computerised self-help programme using cognitive behaviour therapy for depression in a primary care setting in South Auckland.  The use of this programme helped to reduce symptoms of depression and improve social functioning and was well liked by patients and GPs.  The use of computerised self-help may be a viable treatment to reduce the burden of untreated depression in New Zealand.
