Towards the Design of a Mobile Mental Health Self-help System for Emergency Rescuers - A Pilot Study

Manning Li, Jie Hou

Abstract

This study explores the psychological need of emergency rescuers and proposes a strategy for addressing these needs through intelligent virtual advisory tools named ERMS. Drawing on the design science paradigm in the information systems discipline, we explore the key design principals that influence the value of the mental self-help system, through iterations of the user requirements elicitation, system design, development and theory testing. This paper focuses on a systematic review of the contemporary research work that weave together to inform our research emphasis and system design. In the next stage, we will propose our research framework, then testing the framework further through large scale experiments. This paper contributes to the advancement of Information Systems theories in the design of virtual advisory systems. It also highlights to practitioners a few important practical guidelines for the design and development of virtual advisory systems.
