Background. E-mental health is a growing research field and an increasing number of computerized cognitive behavior therapy (cCBT) interventions are available for numerous mental health issues. Such interventions are often claimed to have added benefits, or collateral outcomes, when compared with traditional delivery platforms. Our aim was to systematically review the evidence of the cost-effectiveness, geographic flexibility, time flexibility, waiting time for treatment, stigma, therapist time… 
Public Acceptability of E-Mental Health Treatment Services for Psychological Problems: A Scoping Review
TLDR
This scoping review suggested that e-mental health treatment services were perceived as less helpful than traditional face-to-face interventions, and further research is required to understand psychological facilitator and barriers for the implementation of innovative services into health care.
Therapist-Supported Internet-Based Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Stress, Anxiety, and Depressive Symptoms Among Postpartum Women: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

It is revealed that therapist-supported iCBT significantly improves stress, anxiety, and depressive symptoms among postpartum women with small to large effects.
The Preference for Internet-Based Psychological Interventions by Individuals Without Past or Current Use of Mental Health Treatment Delivered Online: A Survey Study With Mixed-Methods Analysis
TLDR
The results suggest that Internet-based interventions have specific advantages that may facilitate help-seeking among some individuals and some disadvantages that may restrict its use.
Using the Online Psychotherapy Tool to Address Mental Health Problems in the Context of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Protocol for an Electronically Delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program
TLDR
If proven feasible, this care delivery method could increase care capacity by up to fourfold and potentially influence clinical practices and policies and increase accessibility to care during the COVID-19 pandemic, without sacrificing the quality of care.
Using the Online Psychotherapy Tool to Address Mental Health Problems in the Context of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Protocol for an Electronically Delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program (Preprint)
TLDR
Evaluating the feasibility and efficacy of using an online, digital, asynchronous care model to treat mental health issues that are started or aggravated by stressors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic could increase care capacity by up to fourfold.
A Guided Internet-delivered intervention for adjustment disorders: A randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Results suggest that brief self-help intervention with minimal therapist support is more effective than the mere passage of time in reducing the distress symptoms associated to the disorder and also can confer additional benefits.
Understanding the acceptability of e-mental health - attitudes and expectations towards computerised self-help treatments for mental health problems
TLDR
Individuals in this study expressed negative views about computerised self-help intervention and low likelihood of use in the future, suggesting policy makers need to improve the public perception of such interventions.
Efficacy of a Transdiagnostic Self-Help Internet Intervention for Reducing Depression, Anxiety, and Suicidal Ideation in Adults: Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Self-guided transdiagnostic interventions can be beneficial when delivered directly to end users through the internet despite low adherence and small effect sizes, and the availability of such interventions is likely to fill a critical gap in the accessibility of mental health services for the community.
Efficacy of a Transdiagnostic Self-Help Internet Intervention for Reducing Depression, Anxiety, and Suicidal Ideation in Adults: Randomized Controlled Trial (Preprint)
TLDR
Self-guided transdiagnostic interventions can be beneficial when delivered directly to end users through the internet, and despite low adherence and small effect sizes, the availability of such interventions is likely to fill a critical gap in the accessibility of mental health services for the community.

Overall, the results support the value of internet-based interventions that use guided self-help to tackle eating disorders, but further research is needed due to the heterogeneity of the studies.
Cost-effectiveness of therapist-delivered online cognitive–behavioural therapy for depression: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Online CBT delivered by a therapist in real time is likely to be cost-effective compared with usual care if society is willing to pay at least £20 000 per QALY; it could be a useful alternative to face-to-face CBT.
Meta-review of the effectiveness of computerised CBT in treating depression
TLDR
The meta-review supports the efficacy of cCBT for treatment of depression; however there is limited information on different approaches, whose relative cost-effectiveness remains to be demonstrated.
The effect of web based depression interventions on self reported help seeking: randomised controlled trial [ISRCTN77824516]
TLDR
Methods to encourage the use of evidence-based treatments need further research to determine whether the assistance sought is evidence based and whether there are unintended effects.
A RCT of a Transdiagnostic Internet-Delivered Treatment for Three Anxiety Disorders: Examination of Support Roles and Disorder-Specific Outcomes
TLDR
This transdiagnostic iCBT course for anxiety appears to be efficacious, associated with significant change for three target disorders, and is efficacious when guided by either a Clinician or Coach.
Online randomized controlled trial of brief and full cognitive behaviour therapy for depression
TLDR
An exploratory investigation of the parameters that influence the effectiveness and retention of users on open access websites and whether brief cognitive behaviour therapy was as effective as an extended version, whether add-on components of behaviour therapy or stress management contributed to positive outcomes, and whether longer programs were associated with greater attrition.
Cost-effectiveness of computerised cognitive-behavioural therapy for anxiety and depression in primary care: Randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Computer-delivered CBT has a high probability of being cost-effective, even if a modest value is placed on unit improvements in depression, and it revealed a highly competitive cost per quality-adjusted life year.
