From the Editor

MARCH, 2014.

In this issue of the Journal, Carras and colleagues describe the growing use of mobile phones, email, the Internet, and other forms of telecommunication in a community psychiatry clinic. They conclude that the feasibility and impact of technology-based interventions are persuasive and offer new avenues to provide health information and treatment.

Also in this issue of the Journal, Ahuja and colleagues present a case of a young man who posted content on Facebook that suggested suicidal risk, leading to swift and probably life-saving intervention. In their discussion, Draper and Womble suggest that social media, “when used effectively, can be a powerful tool in saving the lives of people who are considering suicide.” They describe a number of Facebook strategies that “harness the power of chat as an intervention tool”—a set of laudable and responsible services that will surely be emulated by other social media systems.
