Some patients continue to have long-term symptoms after a SARS-CoV-2 infection, which are commonly described as Post-COVID syndrome. For the diagnosis and treatment of this syndrome an interdisciplinary team is necessary. This is often difficult to implement in rural areas.

The new form of care "WATCH" therefore combines close to home diagnostics in a mobile Post-COVID outpatient clinic with telemedical interventions. The aim is an improved physical and (neuro-)psychological health and thereby a greater participation in social and working life.

The IMEBI is responsible for the evaluation of the intervention.

Within the project "Psychosocial Needs in patients with Long-Covid (PsyLoCo)", a modular short-term therapy, tailored to the needs of long-covid patients, is developed. The IMEBI is responsible for evaluating the effectiveness of the therapy.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of children and adolescents in Halle (Saale).

The restrictions on public life associated with the COVID-19 pandemic present difficulties and challenges particularly for children and adolescents. 

It is becoming apparent that the extent of those difficulties strongly depends on the individual conditions of their everyday lives. Still, up to now data on the details of these conditions are scarce. 

Therefore, this study investigates how the pandemic affects the mental and physical health of children and adolescents using a cross-section online survey.
The study also focuses on the question of how factors such as social status, migration background or living conditions influence the resilience or vulnerability of children and adolescents.

This study is embedded in the DigiHero Study.

It is conducted in cooperation with the Clinic and Polyclinic for Pediatrics I of the Martin Luther University Halle (Saale).
