Youth mental health apps in the digital age: a scoping review of trends and evaluations

Abstract:

This report provides an overview of published evidence pertaining to apps. The report indicates that at this stage, although there is some evidence related to the value of some apps, evaluations have been limited and incomplete. There is an urgent need for systematic, thorough, objective evaluation of apps to inform decisions about which apps are safe and effective.
