In recent years, psychological complaints have increased and with them the need for treatment for those affected1. The corona pandemic has shown itself to be an additional booster. Many employees, mainly in the nursing and care sector, have psychological problems. This is due on the one hand to the high workload during the Corona period and on the other hand to the pictures of seriously ill and dead people that those affected see every day. After work, the carers fall asleep. There is no longer any time for exchanges with patients and work colleagues. In addition to work, there is no room to say goodbye and to reflect on the experiences in the team. This is very stressful and leads to a mental breakdown in many as soon as the pressure subsides. This can be expected by next summer at the latest, when infections and thus hospital admissions and deaths decline. But not only the care and support area is affected. The amount of work in the home office often leads to tension and even problems at home. Video conferences are more exhausting than physical conversations and working hours are booked out from morning to evening. There is no time to take a deep breath. In addition, there are reduced social contacts, the almost completely disappeared cultural and sporting offer and, last but not least, sitting together in a partnership or family at home. These factors are the breeding ground on which mental illnesses such as depression can thrive. In the past, those affected could fall back on the help of therapists, today they first have to wait for an appointment for an initial consultation with the psychologist. The strong increase in demand makes therapy places rare. The longer you wait for a therapy place, the higher the risk that a mental illness will become chronic.
CaseDesk makes psychiatric treatment easier to manage in the course of orderly reintegration. Through the structured flow of information from the front line of work, experiences are made better and the need for therapy can increase. By calling up the information, it is quicker to see which strategies are already taking effect in everyday life and which still need to be adjusted in their own views. With CaseDesk, those affected get back into the work process more quickly and the therapy sessions can take place at a more frequent pace. This creates space for the psychologists.
Another positive effect is the writing of detailed interim reports from managers. On. This relieves psychiatrists and gives them more time to treat patients.
