AbstractBACKGROUND: Psychological morbidity is commonly found in medical students. AIMS: The Mental Health Support Group (MSG), a student-initiated and student-run web-based peer support service aims to provide mental health information, e mail counseling and an online forum for medical students. METHODS: The development process of MSG is described in the paper with presentation of preliminary evaluation results. RESULTS: Preliminary evaluation shows promising results. Student members of MSG acquired valuable skills in counseling, communication, webpage design and maintenance of an online forum. CONCLUSIONS: Future challenges include succession issues, strategies to keep up the momentum, enhancement of publicity and further diversification of service to meet the needs of our students.
