Telepsychiatry provides new opportunities for the prevention and treatment of mental health disorders
Digital technologies in mental healthcare are envisioned to offer easier, faster and more cost-effective access to mental healthcare. The scope for integrating digital technology into mental healthcare is vast: video conferencing, developing novel treatments using interactive software, mobile applications, and sensor technologies. We outline technology-based interventions, which are relevant to clinical practice and present the evidence base for using digital technology as well as emerging challenges for their implementation in clinical practice.
