Prompt mental health care (Rask Psykisk Helsehjelp) offers guided self-help (Veiledet selvhjelp). The method involves an online self-help program, in combination with regular telephone guidance from a cognitive therapist for a defined period of time. The program contains information, exercises and tasks, and gives you the opportunity to work actively with your problems. We have programs for anxiety, depression, sleep problems, worry and stress/burnout.
Research on guided self-help indicates that it has a good treatment effect on mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
We can also offer up to seven sessions of individual therapy (based on cognitive behavioural therapy), if guided self-help is not suitable for you.
We offer group treatment for anxiety, depression, stress and insomnia - the groups are held in norwegian only, and requires that you are comfortable with communicating in norwegian. You can read about the groups here.
