Recommendations for use
deprexis® can be used from 18 years old1.
deprexis® is based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy and other techniques such as positive psychology.
Through the answers chosen by the patient, deprexis® adapts its approach according to the patient's needs and preferences, suggests exercises and techniques, encourages regular self-assessment of symptoms and offers additional support by e-mail or SMS.
The aim is to enable the patients to learn techniques and methods that they can apply themselves to help them overcome their depression1.
Experience has shown that deprexis® should ideally be used 1-2 times a week for at least half an hour1. After each session, allow yourself time to practice the exercises. You can also download and print out the documents which you can find under the menu "Your exercises".
deprexis® should not be used by patients with bipolar disorder, with psychotic disorder (e.g. schizophrenia) or with suicidal risk.(serious intentions to commit suicide in the last 90 days or attempted suicide in the last 12 months)1.
