Hi Samuel! We don't have results converted in effect sizes but most of the studies would have those reported. We used the mental health metrics instead of effect sizes since we thought it was easier for showing how effective it was for a certain mental health outcome. Having it in effect sizes would be helpful too though!

Thank you! Regarding the metrics for the CEAs, we struggled to look for studies on the interventions that used QALYs/DALYs. We also found it challenging to convert the available metrics into QALYs/DALYs since it is not something the team was knowledgeable about. We decided just to use the most common metric we found among the studies for each intervention to be more accurate in describing its effectiveness.

This is good to hear! We will be running our second intro fellowship soon too and I'm wishing you the best of luck for yours.
