Internet-guided and Telepsychiatry interventions may save costs and time from patients and therapists, they may reach depressed older adults who are not reached with traditional therapies, solve transportation problems, stimulate empowerment of patients, and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. Although a growing number of studies has examined the effects of Internet-based interventions and telephone-supported interventions, few have examined these in older adults. However, research shows that these interventions are promising and there is no reason to assume that they are not effective in older adults. More research is needed, especially since technological developments are going fast and innovative types of interventions and new possibilities to reduce the disease burden in depressed older adults are emerging rapidly.
