Listed on the gateway is THIS WAY UP: a digital provider of evidence-based online courses for anxiety and depression. THIS WAY UP is an initiative of St Vincent’s Hospital’s Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety & Depression  (CRUfAD). It enables GPs to prescribe internet Cognitive Behavioural Therapy programs to their patients, and stay informed of patient progress and outcome measures (e.g. K10, PHQ-9). 

Information about the programs and how to prescribe can be found here. A detailed clinician's user guide is located here.
