Imagine having an assistant, a faithful companion, who makes sure that your clients get the care they need 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That companion of yours also tracks the client's symptoms and moods, as well as their progress on a daily basis. And, it gives them a science-based coaching toolkit to use in between sessions.
As a result, the time you spend on administration, intakes, and assessments is minimal, and you’re able to direct your time and energy to what matters the most: helping your clients.
Nowadays, these reliable assistants come in the form of digital therapy apps. If cleverly designed, these apps can help mental health professionals create a better connection to their clients, come up with data-driven decisions, and provide care to more people in need.
In this article, we're going to cover the following elements of digital care:
1) Remote mental health assessments.
2) Digital mental care with the use of digital journaling, psycho-education, guided meditations, CBT-based worksheets, and exercises.
3) On-going digital feedback for clients.
4) Neurotherapy and the option to do EEG tests and remote neurofeedback training.
Let's take a look at how adding these four elements to your mental health toolkit can improve your workflow.
Remote Symptom Tracking and Assessments
An assessment is the first step in addressing clients' problems, challenges, and circumstances, as well as being a crucial element in designing the correct mental health care plan for them.
But, let’s face it, assessments can be cumbersome and time-consuming. And many mental health professionals are scheduling recurring ones based on the client’s psychological functioning, which can be challenging to keep track of.
Wouldn’t it be more convenient if you could set recurring assessments for clients to complete on their own and easily keep track of their results?
That's where Myndlift for mental health practitioners comes in with a goal to empower mental health specialists to take a step towards a data-driven practice so they can focus on the important stuff: treating their clients.
