Welcome to our series describing Mentegram’s online tools for mental health. These instruments will assist therapists with the overall efficiency of their practices, as well as maintain a high level of engagement for patients. When mental healthcare providers replace paperwork with digital tools, it provides for a better understanding of a patient’s symptoms in between office visits. This also saves valuable time in administration with screening and assessing patients. To regularly achieve these results, Mentegram provides clinicians with a library of tools, ranging from thought-provoking surveys to very simplistic, sliding scale evaluations.

This post will focus on information sheets that mental healthcare providers may assign to patients that are suffering from anxiety. These instruments may be conveniently accessed on the patient’s smart phone, tablet or computer.

A myriad of information sheets are available, exploring thought patterns and providing affirmations that will assist therapists with diagnosing and understanding the patient’s symptoms of anxiety, along with the results of these thinking styles.

 

How Breathing Affects Feelings

Screenings provide therapists with information provided by their patients regarding symptoms of anxiety, including being nervous and on edge. Patients can rate these feelings through a simple sliding scale.

As that many patients do not realize the impact that breathing can have on their emotions, this information sheet delves into the explanation of three different types of breathing: normal, exercise and anxious. This analysis culminates with a diaphragmatic breathing technique, instructing patients how to achieve ultimate relaxation that is free from anxiety.

What Is Rumination

Rumination, also referred to as repetitive thoughts, is a transdiagnostic process that can be a trigger for or even a result of a diverse array of mental health conditions. Rumination can lead to being constantly preoccupied, dwelling on issues from the past and being consistently caught in a loop of anxious thoughts and reactions. However, there are also positive aspects of rumination, and this information sheet provides patients with examples of repetitive thinking as both a hindrance and a helpful, healthy tool to combat the symptoms of anxiety.
