Abstract

Background: The emergence of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Wuhan, China in December 2019 has caused coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and created a confusing situation. COVID-19 is considered responsible for an increase in psychological problems including anxiety, depression, and even mass hysteria. However, along with these conditions, orders to minimize direct contact and time spent in public were implemented to prevent the spread COVI-19, so many psychiatrists turned face-to-face care to tele mental health. This paper will provide the effectiveness of tele mental health compared with face-to-face care in regards to psychiatric services in a setting of quarantine or isolation. A manual search was conducted to select articles published between 2005 and 2020 using the PubMed database. We included full-text articles published in English that reported the effectiveness of telepsychiatry in a setting of quarantine or isolation. Among 557 articles, only 5 studies met all criteria and were included in the review. These articles reported the effectiveness of tele mental health for those who are in a setting of quarantine or isolation. Tele mental health helps those who need psychiatric services, but are not able to have a face-to-face consultation. This review shows equivalent overall effects between tele mental health or face-to-face care in psychiatric services. While the results are equivalent, few studies were obtained. Thus, more research is needed to establish equivalence.
