Digiburn is a digital treatment for burnout

Times of social distancing, work from home, and growing fears undoubtedly leave their mark on our mental health. More and more people feel confused and insecure about their daily lives and what lies ahead. Accumulating stress leads to a drastic rise in the levels of mental disorders and mental health problems around the world. Among the most common of them is the syndrome of occupational burnout, the so-called. “burnout” (from English – burnout). Although the phenomenon is not new, the onset of the covid pandemic marks the beginning of a sharp rise.

What does the problem look like?

The state of occupational burnout has been known since 1970. here. Digitalisation, complex expectations of employees and the changing work environment are contributing to the increasing incidence of burnout. From 2020 Since then, cases of burnout have seen an unprecedented rise worldwide. In 2021 over 50% of the working age population in Central and Western Europe reports feeling emotionally exhausted.

Some symptoms include mental fatigue, nervousness, a feeling of heaviness or overload, apathy, unwillingness or inability to take on work tasks, cynicism in the work plan.

Part of the problem is the gradual development of the condition, which often goes unnoticed. Talking about burnout is taboo, one often has reservations about sharing with relatives or colleagues. Counterintuitively, one of the common reactions is working even harder. This intensifies toxic processes and maintains the fire of combustion.

What is the solution?

Digiburn is a digital treatment for burnout. Presented as a two-part mobile application – free burnout test and therapeutic module. The app is self-help oriented, acts as a pocket mirror and encourages the user to improve the connection with themselves and works for sustainable change. The therapy has been developed by specialists, and the use of the application is independent of the human factor. Without arranging an hour, travel time and the corresponding costs for multiple sessions, the treatment is available at the convenience of your smartphone, wherever and whenever you want.

How does the application work?

It all starts with a short burnout test. If symptoms are present, the user is invited for the therapeutic part. It lasts 3 months and is logically upgraded during the period. In the beginning we work to improve the physiology and general condition of the user. The subjective perceptions of the inner and outer world follow. In the end, the user chooses his new thought patterns to achieve a long-term satisfactory and balanced life.

Each of the 3 modules includes theory, practice and monitoring of the condition and progress in therapy. The user is in the driver’s seat, and the application is the personal advisor who carefully guides him. At all times, the user knows exactly where he is in the process and makes his own decisions about his change. The aim is to address the fundamental prerequisites for burnout and achieve sustainable improvement.

The English version of Digiburn will be available in the Apple App Store and Google Play from March 1, 2022. A Bulgarian version is expected later this year.
