General Information

We are a psychiatric hospital of maximum care and treat the whole spectrum of mental illnesses from "classical" disorders such as depression and anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, dementia and dependence on personality, forced and post-traumatic disorders to stress reactions, meaning and life crises as well as burn-out syndrome. Our clinic located on the Venusberg, directly at the Kottenforst, consists of 6 nicely furnished stations with a total of 106 beds and numerous single rooms, a day clinic with 15 seats as well as an institute and university ambulance.

In our clinic we combine modern science and secure treatment programs with an individually tailored diagnostic and therapy program. We follow a holistic concept which assumes that psychological problems are the result of life-historical development and individual disposition. Accordingly, our range of therapies is based on the four pillars:

  • Medical consultation
  • Psychological, somatic and psychosomatic diagnostics
  • Disorder-specific psycho-therapies of different orientation (deep psychological, behavioral, CBASP, interpersonal psychotherapy, schema therapy)
  • Medical treatment
  • Other physical treatment methods (e.g. magnetic and brain stimulation) and accompanying therapies such as sports, ergo, art, music and dance therapy

All therapies are evidence-based, accompanied by consistent quality assurance. The developed guidelines of scientific societies are integrated in diagnostic and treatment paths. Employees of the clinic are partly involved in the development of guidelines (especially dementias and psychosis). Scientific advances in clinical research are continuously examined and, if necessary, integrated into the treatment procedures.
The treatments are based on thorough and comprehensive diagnostics. The psychological and somatic diagnosis is supplemented, if required, by modern methods of imaging, BioAnalytics (laboratory chemistry), neuropsychology, clinical pharmacology, and deep psychology analysis. Physical examination procedures for participating somatic diseases are widely available in the clinic. We pay special attention to the interaction between the psyche and the body.

Due to the lively clinical research activity at our house, it is also regularly possible to participate in the latest closely-accompanied therapy procedures via the participation in studies.
