A Visual Screening Instrument for Common Mental Disorders and Suicidal Ideation: Validation among the General Population

Efficacy And Cost-Effectiveness Of A Web-Based Stress-Management Training In Employees – Results Of A Randomized Controlled Trial
Background: Work-related stress is associated with a variety of mental and emotional problems. Furthermore, it can lead to substantial economic costs due to lost productivity, absenteeism or the inability to work. Traditional face-to-face stress management interventions (SMIs) for employees have been proven to be effective; however, they are often costly, time-consuming, and characterized by a high access threshold. Web-based interventions may overcome some of these problems; yet the evidence...

Smartphone-based interventions, however, can be used in these situations and my thus be an effective adjunctive component of online-based interventions. Objectiv...
Evaluating the Efficacy of a Web-Based Prevention of Major Depressive Disorder
Background: Web-based interventions have shown to be effective in reducing depressive symptom severity. However, it is not known whether such interventions are also effective in preventing the onset of major depressive disorder (MDD) in at risk-populations. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of an indicated web-based guided self-help intervention (GET.ON Mood Enhancer) on the onset of MDD in individuals with subthreshold depression. Methods: In a randomized controlled ...
