The “iFightDepression” instrument was welcomed at the Mental Health Center inShkodra as a new opportunity to assist all our service users with mild to moderate depressive disorder, as well as for anxiety disorders. The CMHC encountered a number of obstacles related to the implementation of this innovative intervention for many reasons, starting with the physical conditions to perform work (lack of space, lack of sufficient tools to best practice the platform) and the organization of work to include as many cases as possible. In addition, many users,althoughfamiliar with the “iFightDepression” platform, were not interestedto treat their depressive symptoms through an online platform. Other cases, patients did not have the physical conditions in their apartment or could not self-administer and use the platformby themselves without guidance. If we are to talk about the near future for the implementation of this platform to be widely used, the work needs to be reorganized, with more support, more activities in relation to the promotion of the platformto family doctors and community in general, creating better physical conditions for an optimal application of the platform at the CMHC premises.
