MasterMind services

cCBT:

The German MasterMind trial offers patients three internet-based treatments for depression. The involved health professionals are mainly psychologists with a background in CBT.

The main component of first two services is the combination of cCBT sessions and video-based consultations with an Online-Therapist while the third is a guided self-help treatment.

Patients who are considered eligible for the treatment are adults suffering from depression.

Depression Online:

The patient needs a referral from the GP or medical specialist (psychiatrist or neurologist).

From then on, patients can receive 25 sessions of a combination of 50-minute video-based consultations with their online-therapists and cCBT elements on the platform

Relapse prevention:

After an inpatient treatment the patient is offered the relapse prevention program with up to 25 online sessions with an online-therapist.

Get.On Mood Enhancer:

The patients are invited to enter their personal information to the secure ProMind website. Afterwards they receive a registration confirmation and can access the treatment platform. There, the client is asked to fill out the screening questionnaire. Within 24 hours, a ProMind employee will provide the client with his individual treatment recommendation. The patient then receives access to the training modules. The training consists of six training modules and 6-7 additional modules.

ccVC:

Within the stepped care approach to patient care, the German MasterMind trial offers 1) guided and unguided prevention and self-help intervention through Get.On Mood Enhancer (ProMind) as a first step, then 2) outpatient diagnostics and the option for a subsequent internet- and video-based outpatient treatment “Depression Online” if patients experiencing an increase in symptom severity can find easy access to acute treatment in a (co-operating) day clinic or acute hospital. And 3) the internet- and video-based Relapse Prevention programme after inpatient treatment. Patients can enter the program at any stage. This figure shows the stepped care model of healthcare.
