Internet-based interventions in the treatment of mental disorders

Internet based psychotherapy appears to be effective and beneficial, especially in people with depression and anxiety. Nervenarzt. 2016 Sep 20

Comment: This is a review study, so no new information. Other research is conflicting. Some studies show greater overall Internet use is associated with mental disorders, and other studies show targeted Internet use may be beneficial in some mental disorders. This is a fruitful area for further research. When it comes to the Internet, a saying by Hippocrates comes to mind: "Everything in excess is opposed to nature."
