BETTER THAN WAITING FOR THE NEXT APPOINTMENT…
Assisted Self-Help is online tools for those who have mild to moderate symptoms of common mental disorders, such as anxiety or depression.
Most people get access to Assisted Self-Help as part of a service offer, where the tools are implemented in combination with follow-up. The goal is for you to utilize the time between the conversations in the best possible way, and get more out of the follow-up.
The main focus of the follow-up is what you work on between the conversations.
Before start-up, as a rule, a mapping, and a startup conversation with the professional who will follow you up. Theme can be, for example:
What expectations do you have of each other? How will the contact during the process take place? What should the goal be? What could be an obstacle to achieving this goal? Which challenge is the most important to work on now? When should you set aside time to work on homework?
The professional creates a unique and random code, which allows you to access content without sharing your personal data.
V recommends that you downloads the app from Google Play / AppStore and allows notification.
Then you can receive reminders about appointments and mapping. You also don't have to enter the code each time by selecting "Automatic login".
You can also enter the code in the field in the middle of the front page.
When logging in for the first time, you will be asked to approve the sharing of data with the business from which you receive follow-up.
You must answer "Yes" if you would like that the professional can see the results of the mapping and follow your development. You can give or withdraw consent at any time under "Settings".
Initial mapping will help to clarify which problems are the most important to address. This is usually carried out as soon as you have contacted the service or gained access to Assistert Self-Help.
We also recommend that you complete a survey along the way, so that you can follow your progress over time.
SELF HELP TOOLS
Many people get access to coping tools that usually consist of 6 different parts. The tool must be implemented step by step. Only when the entire section is completed will you be able to access the next section. You get an easy overview of completed and remaining content.
The amount of work in the parts varies. A good starting point can be to carry out one to two parts per week, which are followed up with short, weekly conversations with a professional - by phone, video or in person. Some also offer courses or follow-up in groups.
