Background: As gatekeepers, parents can improve the uptake of mental health services among youth. This arti- cle asked whether providing parents with a presentation on computer-based therapies is a feasible strategy to improve their knowledge, attitudes and uptake intentions. Method: Parents completed a survey before, and immediately after, viewing a presentation on computer-based therapies or an active control. Results: Parents who viewed the computer-based presentation reported significantly greater improvements in knowledge, per- ceived helpfulness, perceived benefits and intentions to access computer-based therapies; and a significantly greater reduction in perceived problems, compared to active controls. Conclusions: Information- and demon- stration-based presentations are a feasible method for improving attitudes towards computer-based therapies for youth among parents in the community.
