Abstract

Background Mobile apps for the treatment of psychiatric disorders represent a new alternative to enlarge the quality and availability of psychiatric treatment. Although this type of treatment seem to be cost-effective, it’s efficacy remains questioned. In this study, we provide an overview of apps that are applicable for mental health. Aims To present the efficacy of evidence-based mobile apps for the treatment of mood disorders, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. Methods An English language literature search was conducted using Pubmed and EMBASE searching for reporting the efficacy of mental health software applications. Results Preliminary evidence indicates that mental health mobile apps show promise in improving medication adherence, reduce anxiety symptoms, decreasing psychotic and depressive symptoms. Conclusion Mobile apps for the treatment of psychiatric disorders have expanded rapidly and have a considerable potential. However, the heterogeneity and often poor quality still hinder any explicit conclusions.
