Dataset for a novel study which examines technologically-assisted interventions in South Africa for psychological and neurological treatments from 1996 to 2021. Using a PRISMA-ScR search across 14 databases, 13 studies were selected, revealing trends: concentration in populous or economically influential provinces, increasing accessibility, diverse participant considerations, and a notable gap in South African literature, primarily focusing on telemedicine. The prevalence of telemedicine underscores its role in mobile health (mHealth) interventions, addressing healthcare delivery challenges in rural areas. This study provides a concise overview of technologically-assisted interventions in South Africa, highlighting current trends and suggesting avenues for further research.
