UPR Online uses the internet to help organisations providing support, counseling and information to provide interactive learning and therapeutic tools for their clients.
Its founder, Alison Darcy, a research psychologist believes that more internet-based activities would help these organisations to deliver their message to much wider audiences.
Organisations could also connect to those who would never ordinarily use traditional services such as one-to-one counselling or support groups. These organisations could benefit enormously from being able to provide their target audience with immediate, secure, and evidence-based help.
I want to make it easier for people to access help when they need it…by giving people an easier alternative to attending traditional face-to-face services, we can provide people with a positive first experience, and make it easier for them to avail of traditional services if necessary.
