Depression is one of the most frequent mental health problems. Although there are several effective treatment options, only few individuals in need receive an appropriate treatment. During the last few years, research on internet-based interventions has grown rapidly. The aim of the present review is to summarize the current empirical evidence. In sum, internet-based interventions have shown to be promising and effective alternatives and/or adjuncts for existing treatment options. Various possible applications and their evidence are presented. Moreover, research findings on their use in combination with pharmacotherapy and the optimal dissemination and implementation of internet-based interventions for depression are discussed.
