Getting Help With Your Issues Has Never Been This Easy!

Dr. Michiel Bosman MD & PhD the Founder of Open Forest, a self-help online protocol designed to help users with their mental health issues joins eHealth Radio the Health News & Mental Health Channels.

 

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. Michiel Bosman discuss the following:

  • Can you tell us the story behind Open Forest and why you created it?  What is your background?
  • What results are you finding with Open Forest and from the people you talk to that are using it?
  • Is there a specific audience or problem that Open Forest helps the most?
  • How is Open Forest changing the way we manage our mental health care?  In other words, does having the opportunity to have "on demand" help make a significant difference for users and why?
  • Does Open Forest work in concert with your mental health or medical professional or is it a stand alone product so that users don't need to rely on your traditional medical/mental health professional as much and/or in times of crisis or is Open Forest more of an "as you go" health tool and why?

As a psychiatrist, I am always on the lookout for truly epic content about mental health issues to share with my patients. This collection of evidence-based, useful and relevant articles has lead to the Open Forest initiative. My MD/PhD crew and I add new content daily, with the help of an ever-growing group of contributors from all over the world!

We not only offer unique, high-quality blog posts, but also mental health self-tests and our acclaimed self-help modules.

Whether you use these self-help modules on your own, or in a “blended therapy” setting (which basically means you combine self-help modules and regular counseling sessions), we are pretty sure you will find the website useful.
