Assessing the mental state through a blog: Psychiatry in the 21st century?

Abstract:
Blogs have become increasingly popular over the past 15 years, especially with young people. In this editorial we discuss how the blogosphere is reshaping information exchange in healthcare. More specifically, blogs may change the doctor-patient relationship and provide clinically relevant information to mental health practitioners. However, the use of blogs as a source of clinical material raises ethical and legal issues.
