Psychoeducation measures

Sharing Long Covid symptoms and experiences with other patients

Psychoeducation measures in Long Covid treatment


Covid discussion groups

  • Covid discussion groups are an important module in Long Covid rehabilitation. Patients participating in these groups can exchange and share their experience of the long-term effects of coronavirus and the symptoms of Long Covid.

Further psychoeducational measures

  • Depending on whether a mental health issue is present, the patient is assigned to disorder-specific indication groups (e.g. A pain group, depression group or anxiety management group, possibly also a trauma group). In addition, specific individual psychotherapy should be provided once a week, if necessary at a more regular frequency in the case of post-traumatic symptoms.
  • Social counselling with the development of a career perspective should also be offered where needed. Psychopharmacological treatment is not a priority, but can be offered if indicated.
