iFightDepression®Ein begleitetes Online- Selbstmanagement-Programm zur Ergänzung der Depressionstherapie

Deutsche Depressionshilfe, (2019)

Das Programm richtet sich an Menschen mit leichteren Depressionsformen, d.h. leichte bis mittelgradige, aber auch subklinische Depression. Es zielt darauf ab, Betroffene beim eigenständigen Umgang mit den Symptomen einer Depression zu unterstützen. iFightDepression beruht auf den Prinzipien der Kognitiven Verhaltenstherapie, welche sich in der Forschung als wirksam bei Depression erwiesen hat. Es hat sich gezeigt, dass onlinebasierte Programme genauso gut wie eine persönliche Behandlung bei einem Arzt oder Therapeuten funktionieren können. Es ist derzeit in zwölf Sprachen verfügbar (deutsch, englisch, italienisch, estnisch, ungarisch, griechisch, norwegisch, spanisch, katalanisch, baskisch, albanisch, arabisch; Stand November 2018). Die deutsche Version wird über die Stiftung Deutsche Depressionshilfe im Rahmen einer Kooperation mit der Deutsche Bahn Stiftung angeboten, evaluiert und weiterentwickelt.

SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration(SAMHSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), (2019)

The SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) promotes the development of integrated primary and behavioral health services to better address the needs of individuals with mental health and substance use conditions, whether seen in specialty behavioral health or primary care provider settings. CIHS is funded jointly by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration(SAMHSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and run by the National Council for Behavioral Health. Despite the high prevalence of mental health and substance use problems, too many Americans go without treatment — in part because their disorders go undiagnosed. Regular screenings in primary care and other healthcare settings enables earlier identification of mental health and substance use disorders, which translates into earlier care. Screenings should be provided to people of all ages, even the young and the elderly
