Online therapy in Bologna

In Bologna, Italy there is a new modern approach to health care. The municipality of the city of Bologna has been working with an online therapy institute. The idea for this initiative was undertaken by Dr. Franco Basaglia and Dr. Vittorino Andreoli who were both psychologists. It offers psychological help to the people of the community using an online platform and sessions and offers a more convenient and less expensive way to access this type of service.

The online therapy platform was created to help people who are not able or do not have the time to go out to a therapist’s office. This program offers assistance through live video sessions with a psychologist. Users can also create chats where they interact directly with each other, without the interference of a therapist.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Mental Health in Bologna

The general prevalence of mental health disorders in the general population is 6.7%. A large proportion of severe mental illness in adults is not recognized or treated. Recognition, treatment, and care are often delayed because of the stigma associated with these conditions.

Mental disorders are most common in young people aged 18-24 years old, with an average prevalence of 11%. This age group also has the highest proportion of severe or lifetime disorders at 20%. Depression is also more common in this age group at 9% with bipolar disorder being less than 1%.

People living in rural areas can face challenges getting access to care for mental health issues. Access to care can be difficult due to the distances that must be traveled and limited transportation options. Care can also be further delayed if there are language barriers or an inadequate mental health workforce. The lack of access to services contributes to an increased risk for suicide in rural areas. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death among people aged 15-24 years old, and nearly half of these suicides are committed by suffocation (mostly hanging).
