Abstract

This study set up and evaluated an online mutual support group for college students with psychological problems. In a 2 x 2 pre-post design, participants (N = 238) were randomly assigned to either the Information Only condition, giving access to a Web site containing information about student problems, or to the Support Group condition, giving access to an identical Web site with the addition of an online mutual support group. Participants in both conditions improved on two of the three outcome measures, the CORE-OM and the Satisfaction with Life Scale, but there was no evidence of differential outcome between the two conditions.
