This paper provides an overview of the evidence on e-mental health support and treatment options for people seeking help with problem gambling.
- The majority of e-mental health interventions have scarcely been evaluated.
- E-mental health may provide an appropriate, cost-effective option for increasing the proportion of people seeking help with problem gambling.
- Program evaluations are required for different groups and situations, to demonstrate the efficacy and effectiveness of treatment options.
- Telephone-based treatments have accumulated the most comprehensive evidence base to date, but some other options also show promise.
- Combinations of e-mental health interventions, and integration of e-mental health with traditional supports, seem to have the greatest potential for intervention programs.
