PTSD Hjælp: the healthcare app to support people with PTSD
In close collaboration with Forskningsenhed og Kompetencecenter for Psykoterapi, Psykoterapeutisk Center Stolpegård, and Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri, Empact developed PTSD Hjælp, an app that supports people with PTSD.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. The institutions above are all research units for psychotherapy in Denmark. In a close partnership with scientists and healthcare personnel, Empact created a digital solution to help patients suffering from PTSD. The app serves as a helpline that is always close to these patients, even when they are not at the clinic.
The app can be used independently or as a supplement to conversational processing.
PTSD Hjælp contains information about PTSD: What is PTSD? Who gets PTSD? How to recover? Where to get professional help.
The application enables testing of PTSD symptoms and sleep quality — both for assessment of severity and ongoing change.
The app also contains soothing tools to deal with PTSD symptoms, with a particular focus on sleep disorders.
The app PTSD Hjælp (PTSD Help) works to aid in relapse prevention. It guides patients by identifying PTSD and sleep disorders, offering breathing techniques, relaxing images, tasks that will help improve their mood, exercises, and a soothing voice to enable a user to fall asleep.
The app also works as a supplement to psychotherapeutic treatment while the patient is under the care of a certified specialist. It comes with direct access and contact information for local psychiatric hospitals.
