Minddistrict offers the possibility to involve a friend (or more) for your online treatment process. This could be, for example, a partner, a good friend or your parents. A friend can therefore be part of conversations in a secure environment. It is possible that the therapist will be invited to interviews.

Your therapist cannot see which relatives you have invited. If a friend is involved in a conversation, the therapist will see the preset screen name.


A friend has a selfhelp catalogue that they can use themselves with a number of selfhelp tools (if made available by the organization).

These tools, modules or diaries, cannot be seen by anyone, neither the client nor the therapist. Friends can also not view the tools of the client.


You can create an account for a friend via the homepage.

  1. Click the 'Invite a friend' button.
  2. Enter the person's name and email address.
  3. The person you add will now receive an email to log in.
  4. You can now start a conversation with him/her/they (and possibly your therapist).




Remove a friend account

Do you want to remove a friend from your network? Then click on the cross (to the right of the name) and confirm. He or she will then no longer be able to send you messages. Previously sent messages will be saved. You can find them via 'Contact'.
