Digital help for PTSD Hjælp
In close collaboration with Forskningsenhed og Kompetencecenter for Psykoterapi, Psykoterapeutisk Center Stolpegård and Region Hovedstadens Psykiatri, Empact has developed 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 has created a digital solution to help patients suffering from PTSD. A helpline that’s always close to them, even when they are not at the clinic.
The app can be used independently or as a supplement to conversational processing.
Contains information about PTSD: What is PTSD? Who gets PTSD? How to recover? Where to get professional help.
Enables testing of PTSD symptoms and sleep quality - both for assessment of severity and ongoing change.
Contains soothing tools to deal with PTSD symptoms with a particular focus on sleep disorders.
The app PTSD Hjælp (PTSD Help) work to aid in relapse prevention. It guides patients by identifying PTSD and sleep disorders by offering breathing techniques, relaxing images, tasks that will help improve their mood, exercises, and a soothing voice to enable a user to fall to sleep.
The app also works a supplement to psychotherapeutic treatment, while the patient is under the care of a certified specialist. It comes with direct access and contact information of local psychiatric hospitals.
