Oh My Mood develops innovative health care pathways to improve care processes within the mental health care. Our aim is to develop valid, affordable and evidence-based mental health care programmes that can serve a vast audience.
We therefore design thorough, scientifically based mental health programmes to be implemented in all levels of mental health care, including primary care, pre- and post-treatment, relapse prevention and specialist secondary care. The health care pathways combine evidence-based therapeutic interventions with the latest digital solutions such as eHealth and videocalls.
Oh My Mood offers a novel and non-stigmatising approach to mental health care and addresses mental health from a trans-diagnostic, holistic, cultural sensitive and multidisciplinary perspective.
This makes the care path suitable for the treatment of a variety of diagnoses, including anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive disorders.
By approaching mental health from a contextual and multidisciplinary angle the many determinants of mental health are considered. The interventions aim to relief symptomatic distress and promote a healthy life style that can improve psychological and mental well-being in general.
We take it as our assignment to design thorough scientifically based mental health programmes that can be implemented at all levels of mental health care. To ensure quality and to continuously improve, Oh My Mood works closely together with clinics and with various universities at home and abroad, including University of Manchester, University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University. In the Netherlands research is done by Maastricht University.
Collaborations can take the shape in small scale pilot studies, by PhD students or through external funding opportunities.
A large number of additional modules will be offered to support treatment.
These modules include topics like healthy eating behaviours, mindfulness, yoga, tai chi, assertiveness training and debt management. The supporting modules are optional and provide the therapist with the option to customize the care pathway to the individual needs of service users.
Treatment supportive modules will be developed and evaluated continuously in collaboration with service users,
clinicians and universities.
