Mental health-related digital use by university students: a systematic review.

The internet and new technologies are widely used by students and represent a significant resource to them for mental health information and support.

But are they really using it? And how?

We conducted a systematic review to summarize and critique studies of mental health-related digital use (including purposes, advantages, and barriers) by students worldwide, in order to support the implementation of future digital mental health interventions targeting university students.
