HCM 600 Research Project
The Potential of Telepsychiatry Services as Regards the Care of Chronic Psychiatric Illnesses
A proposal for research project
Prepared by

Background & Problem Statement
Chronic mental health disorders, depression, anxiety, and bipolar illness are among
psychological disorders affecting the individuals’ quality of life and happiness. In the Saudi Arabia,
non-communicable diseases like mental illness are dominating the atmosphere, with their rates
forecasted to rise from the current 1 in 4 to 1 in 3. The deepest fear instability in the future of this
generation is mental wellbeing conditions (Al-Rfou et al., 2018). However, intellectual health
professionals found licensed individuals might not be everywhere due to factors like disease,
intellectual fitness stigma and some cultural disapproval of intellectual fitness (Al-Ohali et al.,
2020). Guided by the advancements of technology, telepsychiatry, i.e., the application of
telecommunication machines for a mental health delivery to the patient outside the office, has
become a lively alternative to overcome the accessibility problems.
This study aims to explore the effects of telepsychiatry treatment activities on people
with long-lasting mental health problems in Saudi Arabia through measuring the decrease in the
anxiety, depression and stress levels of the patients. This assessment will be done by comparing
the level of these illnesses before and after the treatment in order to know the effectiveness of the
proposed method. Even though existing research has indicated the effective role of telepsychiatry
in the process of coping with the symptoms of mental disorders, a gap still remains as far as the
understanding of the long-term impact on symptom reduction, treatment adherence and general
patient wellness is concerned in the Saudi context.
Literature Review
Technological evolution is a critical component of telehealth that assist people to overcome
recurrent mental health issues. Methodical appraisal, Fortes et al. (2018), comprising 22 researches
focusing on telepsychiatry interventions for depression and anxiety looked at adult populations.
These researches revealed that interventions provided through video conference were as effective
as in-person care decreasing the symptoms and severity of mental health conditions among the
patients. Gathering the similar volume of data, Wright et al. (2015), in their research on
telepsychiatric service for adults with depression, combine and analyze data from 31 studies. The
study results marked significant improvements in depression related symptoms in comparison to
the regular care to care groups in waitlist. Research findings reported that telehealth may serve as
an equally good and reliable substitute treatment for chronic mental illness including depression
and anxiety for patients who prefer remote care.
Insufficient research on long-term outcomes
Attributable to this, the efficiency of telepsychiatry in the short-term is ensured.
However, due to absence of studies on its long-term effects, we cannot trust the outcome
completely. Recently one the novice study by Bauer et al. (2020) revealed teletherapy impact on
the one-year study-up effects for exposure to depression. Individuals who went through
digitalized cognitive behavioral treatment (iCBT) after the training continued their positive
outcome by showing a drop in symptom severity and better quality of life compared to baseline.
Yet, this has been reported in the research settings; population sampling was, evidently, western;
therefore, the replication of this research to the Saudi population likewise needs to be explored.
There might be variation in community norms, health system configuration, and availability of
patient choices which may also affect the long-term outcomes and the sustainability of
telepsychiatry interventions under the Saudi scenario.
Cultural Complications Facing Telepsychiatry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The efficiency of telepsychiatry programs now depends not only on their clinical
competencies but also on their cultural sensitivity. In Saudi Arabia, the social stigma around
mental health is a major obstacle to care seekers (Al-Rfou et al., 2018). Through the services
rendered by the psychiatrist online such as anonymity and prolonged privacy, it is possible that
the barrier of stigma can be solved thus increasing the advocacy for treatment seeking.
Nevertheless, a work by Al-Ohali et al. (2020) which investigates general Saudi Arabian people
attitudes towards telepsychiatry found out that confidentiality is one of the significant issues as
well as the lack of acquaintance with technology among some of the respondents. Such outcomes
signify a necessity for culturally competent education, and also awareness campaigns, to address
those issues, and improve community confidence in telepsychiatry service.
Moreover, cultural preferences for in-person interaction may also affect attention on the
part the characters towards telepsychiatry. Even though modern generations in other countries
express a growing need for online medicine platforms, the older generation still tends to prefer to
consult a general practitioner in a traditional way. Meanwhile, telepsychiatry may not be as
effective in the case of chronic intellectual health problems patients due to their special
conditions. For situations such as despondency and pressure that usually answer well to talk
therapy, telepsychiatry can probably players sufficient role. On the other hand, the cases with
higher degree of complexity as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder should ideally be almost
always a mix of telepsychiatry and face-to-face approach for dealing with combination of needs
of treatment.
Effectiveness for Different Conditions and Treatment Modalities
Telepsychiatry effectiveness represents a varying type of scale depending on the exact
mental health problem being handled. Moreover, some investigations should be done to
determine the appropriateness of telepsychiatry therapies in regard to the above psychiatric
diseases usually reported in Saudi Arabia like stress, future disorder, OCD and PTSD. Another
aspect that should be mentioned is the facilitation of different healing techniques through
telepsychiatry and this is very feasible. Studies across Fortes et al. (2018) and Wright et al.
(2015) mostly focused on the use of telepsychiatry interventions integrated in the CBT model.
This involves the need to probe the successes of various treatment methods like IPT and
medication management as delivered through telepsychiatry so as to describe better the
modality’s viability in the Saudi context.
lastly, studies indicate telepsychiatry as the effective manner of resolving the constant
problems of patients with mental illness. Though this evidence is vital to make the approach
effective in the short run; however, we need more research to explain its influence on different
cultures like Saudia Arabia in the long run. Addressed are cultural problems and the introduction
of indigenous interventions responding to various conditions; the effectiveness of different
methods of treatment and medical services will be items of research interest.
Methodology
Design
This research will utilize systematic review design to collect and analyze data. The systematic
review aims to investigate the effectiveness of telepsychiatry interventions for chronic mental
health conditions (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder) in adults (aged 18-65). Specifically, we
will examine the impact of telepsychiatry on symptom severity, medication adherence and wellbeing.
Instrument
For this study, databases re-lated to the topic will be thoroughly e-xamined. Major ones
like PubMe-d, PsycINFO, and Embase will be searche-d. Keywords connected to telepsychiatry
(e.g. “telepsychiatry”, “video consultation”, “teleme-dicine”), mental health issue-s (like
“depression”, “anxie-ty”, “bipolar disorder”), and outcome measure-s (“symptom severity”,
“medication adhe-rence”, “well-be-ing”) will be combined. The se-arch will utilize AND, OR,
NOT operations to narrow results, identifying only relevant scholarly works addressing the
research question.
Sampling Strategy & Setting
Studies will be included based on the following criteria:
Population: Adults (aged 18-65) diagnosed with a chronic mental health condition (depression,
anxiety, bipolar disorder) according to DSM-5 criteria.
Intervention: Studies investigating telepsychiatry interventions as the primary or adjunctive
treatment.
Outcomes: Studies reporting at least one of the following outcomes: symptom severity,
medication adherence, and well-being, measured using validated instruments.
Study Design: Studies will include randomized controlled trials (RCTs), controlled clinical trials
(CCTs), and observational studies (cohort studies, case-control studies).
Language: English language publications.
Exclusion criteria will encompass:
– Studies focusing on children or adolescents (below 18 years old)
– Studies with interventions primarily focused on substance use disorders or severe
cognitive impairment.
– Studies with unclear or poorly defined outcomes
– Reviews, commentaries, or case reports
Data Analysis
Quantitative records from the standardized devices can be analyzed using Statistical
Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software program. Descriptive records might be used to
summarize baseline developments of the sample.
Two independent reviewers will screen titles, abstracts, and full texts of retrieved studies
for eligibility. Disagreements will be resolved through discussion or by consulting a third reviewer.
Data extraction will involve collecting relevant information from included studies using a
standardized data extraction form. Extracted data will include study characteristics (author, year,
publication type, study design),
– Participant characteristics (age, diagnosis, sample size)
– Intervention details (type of telepsychiatry, duration, frequency)
– Outcome measures and results (symptom severity, medication adherence, well-being)
A narrative synthesis approach will be employed to summarize the findings from the
included studies. We will present the characteristics and outcomes of each study and categorize
them based on intervention type, population, and outcome measures. If feasible, we will perform
a meta-analysis to quantitatively combine data from studies with similar interventions and
outcomes.

Ethical Considerations
Although systematic reviews themselves do not inevitably include human participants,
ethical issues are still crucial for a genuine and trustworthy review. undefined
Data Privacy and Confidentiality: When extracting data from the included studies, the research
team will ensure that anonymize any personal participant information in order to preserve their
privacy.
Reporting Bias: The researchers will be sensitized to check any likely bias in the literature
reviewed, which may include, identifying any unpublished studies that have negative or
inconclusive results. Where such studies are uncovered, the research team will document each step
of reviewing the materials and report their procedure in the final report.
Transparency and Reproducibility: Thoroughly describe the search strategy, selection criteria,
and data extraction procedure. It will establish transparency and other people will be able to
reproduce study.
Conflicts of Interest: Any conflict of interest that might affect the outcome of this research will
be disclosed in advance. Such conflict may originate from funding sources, affiliations with
pharmaceutical companies, etc.
