This paper investigated the demographic attributes of Internet users in Ireland, and provided an in-depth analysis of demographic and self-reported mental health characteristics of Internet users who search for health information online. It also examined the willingness of respondents who do not use the Internet as a source of information on health, to potentially use it for health information.
