We are looking for reports of any kind (incl evaluations, audits, surveys, stakeholder feedback and testimonies) that present qualitative or quantitative data on service users/family members/carers/staff experiences of telemental health (including clinical or social outcomes for service users) and data on the adoption, reach, acceptability and uptake of telemental health. We are interested in both published and non-published reports that you are happy to have incorporated in a review of the evidence. Please send us any reports that you are aware of on this topic.”
