Abstract [en]

Information technology is increasingly used in healthcare. New methods, such as apps and computer programs and Internet-based treatments are introduced to treat various medical diagnoses. Increased demand for help in mental illness means that it is necessary to develop alternative assessment and treatments to traditional treatments that may be offered by primary care and specialist psychiatry. Government and Local Authorities and Regions (SKL) have agreed to support, and treatment on the web is part of that development. The work is all about, and how Child and Adolescent Psychiatry ( Bup ) , use psychological e- services, and apps for the treatment of adolescents and the types of psychological e-treatments for adolescents are available in Sweden today.  Methods used are interviews and literature studies, where I examined the use of computerized psychological treatments in Västernorrland and Stockholm County Council. What is there to provide young people with mental health problems for various forms of internet treatments? There are a number of psychological e- treatments on the market in Sweden, which has proven beneficial effect. Most of them are not used specifically for young people. Research on psychological e- treatments for children and adolescents is still in its infancy, but the potential benefits have already been seen. This has also thrown light upon the advantages and disadvantages of psychological e- treatment in general. There are a lot of interesting research on the subject Internet psychiatric treatment and several ongoing projects conducted around the Swedish county councils, so in the future there will hopefully be more psychological internet treatment to offer adolescents.
