Online therapy in Gothenburg

Online therapy is a form of psychotherapy by which the therapist and patient are in different locations including Gothenburg, but they are connecting through the internet. Online therapy has been offered for over 20 years now with about 1000 therapists being licensed to provide it. The benefit of this type of therapy is that the therapist and patient can work on their issues from anywhere in the world, so long as they have an internet connection. Online therapy is a method that both the patient and therapist can feel good about.

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

Mental Health in Gothenburg

These are the mental health statistics in Gothenburg:

– Cases of anxiety 1 to 4: 11.9%

– Cases of depression 1 to 2: 7.6%

– Cases of schizophrenia and schizotypical disorders 1 to 4: 3.4%

Anxiety, depression, and other common mental health conditions are more prevalent in women than men. Schizophrenia tends to arise earlier in the male population

In 2006, there was total number of cases reported for Gothenburg that was 3312 The amount is increased over time and the reason is unknown. Rapid social change and economic crises might play a role in the development of mental health problems according to research articles by Johan Cullberg (professor in psychiatry), 2011

According to an article by Johan Cullberg in 2011, there is a shortage of treatment given in Gothenburg for mental health patients. It is also difficult for patients who have mild or unmanageable mental conditions to get any help at all. There are long waiting times until they can get into psychiatric wards when necessary

As per national standards, the waiting time at public clinics should not exceed 14 days depending on the severity of the problem(s) but it has been reported that these guidelines are often not followed and psychiatric care could be delayed up to several weeks before receiving care. The reason might be either lack of manpower or beds which means many people do not receive any psychiatric care at all


The majority of mental health problems are mild to moderate, but these cases are often not treated or even recognized by healthcare professionals. People with severe mental conditions have difficulty in finding help that is both accessible and adapted to their needs. Therefore, many people suffering from depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, etc. will not receive any treatment until the condition worsens which means it could be too late for early therapy.
