Evidence on the Use of Virtual Mental Health Care Technologies for Youth​


Executive Summary

This CanCOVID rapid review summarizes the evidence on scope, use, and outcomes of Virtual Mental Health Care (VMHC) technologies in youth with mental illness. ​

While the question is not specific to COVID-related illness and its consequences, the intent is to consider these technologies in the context of the COVID pandemic, which has had serious and long-term implications for youth mental health and for the rapid development of these technologies for this population.​

We conducted an electronic systematic search for selected databases for the period of January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2022, and found 24 eligible studies for inclusion in this review.​
