Technology in Association With Mental Health: Meta-ethnography

by   Hamza Mohammed, et al.

This research paper presents a meta-analysis of the multifaceted role of technology in mental health. The pervasive influence of technology on daily lives necessitates a deep understanding of its impact on mental health services. This study synthesizes literature covering Behavioral Intervention Technologies (BITs), digital mental health interventions during COVID-19, young men's attitudes toward mental health technologies, technology-based interventions for university students, and the applicability of mobile health technologies for individuals with serious mental illnesses. BITs are recognized for their potential to provide evidence-based interventions for mental health conditions, especially anxiety disorders. The COVID-19 pandemic acted as a catalyst for the adoption of digital mental health services, underscoring their crucial role in providing accessible and quality care; however, their efficacy needs to be reinforced by workforce training, high-quality evidence, and digital equity. A nuanced understanding of young men's attitudes toward mental health is imperative for devising effective online services. Technology-based interventions for university students are promising, although variable in effectiveness; their deployment must be evidence-based and tailored to individual needs. Mobile health technologies, particularly activity tracking, hold promise for individuals with serious mental illnesses. Collectively, technology has immense potential to revolutionize mental health care. However, the implementation must be evidence-based, ethical, and equitable, with continued research focusing on experiences across diverse populations, ensuring accessibility and efficacy for all.
