Despite the growing deployment of network representation throughout psychological sciences, the question of whether and how networks can systematically describe the effects of psychological interventions remains elusive. Towards this end, we capitalize on recent breakthrough in network control theory, the engineering study of networked intervention...

Point prevalence estimates for common skin symptoms vary widely. Most research has focussed on a few symptoms and a single point of observation. The aim of this study is to determine point prevalence rates for 12 self-reported skin symptoms in 1998 and 2015 and to assess changes in the reporting of skin symptoms over time. Symptoms were assessed by...

Background: As phenotypes of depressive disorders (DD) are highly heterogenous, a growing number of studies investigate person-specific associations of depressive symptoms in time series data. Most available methods for estimating applicable models rely on the assumption that the associations between variables stay constant over time, which can be...

Objective: Asylum seekers often suffer from medically unexplained symptoms that affect their quality of life (QoL). The present study is the first to investigate the extent to which somatic symptoms and the B criteria for the DSM-5 somatic symptom disorder (SSD) are associated with the QoL of asylum seekers living in Germany. Methods: In 144 asy...

The COVID-19 pandemic and associated measures to restrict the spread of the virus correlated with limitations in healthcare and changes in depression-related lifestyle elements (loss of daily structure, lack of exercise, and extended bed and sleep time) for depressed patients, both of which are known to negatively affect the course of depression. T...

Background: Internet- and mobile-based interventions are most efficacious in the treatment of depression when they involve some form of guidance, but providing guidance requires resources such as trained personnel, who might not always be available (eg, during lockdowns to contain the COVID-19 pandemic). Objective: The current analysis focuses on...

Background: Due to an increase in migration and globalization, cross-cultural encounters in health care are also becoming more frequent. As psychotherapy is grounded in a cultural context and must be congruent with the patient's cultural beliefs of his or her illness in order to be effective, the consideration of cross-cultural differences in illn...

Project
The German Depression Foundation is studying the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic for people affected by depression and the consequences for their health, their health care, and the interactions with their treatment options. We analyse data from representative surveys of the German general population (“Deutschland Barometer Depression”) as well as log data from the iFightDepression tool, a digital intervention for mild to moderate depression and dysthymia that was made available without guidance for a short period of time during the first nationwide lockdown in Germany.

Depression and anxiety are the most prevalent mental health difficulties in the workplace in the EU, causing immense suffering and costing the global economy €1 trillion each year in lost productivity. Certain sectors, in particular construction sector, health sector, information and communication technology (ICT) sector, have an elevated risk of mental health difficulties, with those working in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) being particularly vulnerable. However, most SMEs have limited capacity to address mental health promotion and provide mental health interventions to the staff. As SMEs comprise more than 90% of all EU businesses, there is a huge potential to influence population health. The MENTUPP project is a four-year project involving 17 partners in Europe and Australia, involving a wide range of disciplines that aimed at improving mental health and wellbeing in the workplace by developing, implementing and evaluating a comprehensive, multilevel intervention programme targeting both clinical (depressive, anxiety disorders) and non-clinical (stress, burnout, wellbeing, depressive symptoms) mental health issues, as well as combating the stigma of mental (ill-) health. The intervention will be tailored for SMEs in construction, healthcare and ICT sectors and will be assessed in a multi-country Cluster Randomised Controlled Trial (CRCT). The primary goal is to improve mental health in the workplace, with a secondary goal to reduce depression and suicidal behaviour.
