Abstract Despite the elevated rates of psychiatric problems among returning combat veterans, available evidence suggests that as many as half of soldiers screening positive for mental health problems never seek treatment for these issues (Fikretoglu et al., 2008, Hoge et al., 2006). One promising treatment approach that has shown efficacy in preliminary research and which may address issues related to stigma and barriers to care, is the used of web-based treatment interventions. In particular, internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT) is rapidly emerging as a potentially efficacious treatment option for many individuals with mild to moderate depression (Andersson and Cuijpers, 2009). Emerging evidence suggests that iCBT is a particularly promising and well-accepted approach for treating large numbers of individuals while minimizing cost and clinicians time demand. Recently, researchers from the School of Psychiatry at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) developed and validated several, clinician-assisted iCBT programs that have shown remarkable success in treating major depressive disorder (MDD), generalized anxiety disorder, social phobia, and panic disorder (Robinson et al., 2010, Titov et al., 2010, Titov et al., 2009).
