Family groups

If a relative falls ill with a mental illness, this always affects relatives and the whole family.
Relatives often feel overwhelmed, left alone and have to deal with incomprehension and prejudice. Frequently, questions arise about the illness itself, treatment options and the right way to deal with the person with the illness.

The relatives' groups at our clinic are led by experienced colleagues. They offer those affected valuable information and above all want to promote the exchange between relatives.

Alzheimer's family group

The group meets once a month and, with a size of 6-10 participants, provides ample opportunity to discuss in a calm manner all the issues and problem areas that arise when living with someone with dementia.

General group for relatives of mentally ill people

The onset of a psychiatric illness is a great burden for the family of the affected person and his or her social environment. Therefore, we want to try to answer your personal questions that arise with the illness and the consequences of the illness in order to support and accompany you during the difficult time of the illness of your family member.

You will have the opportunity to talk with other relatives, under the aspect of confidentiality, about your problems and burdens, with which you are directly confronted as a relative of a mentally ill person.

At present, the group consists of participants whose family members suffer from schizophrenia, schizoaffective psychosis or endogenous depression. The group size varies between 10 and 16 participants.

You are cordially invited and can participate in this offer without pre-registration.

  • Exchange of experiences in dealing with the sick family member
  • Provision of specialist information about the disease and its treatment options
  • Mutual support

Relatives group for relatives of people with psychosis disorders

Relatives group for relatives of people with psychosis disorders

The relatives' group is aimed at relatives of patients with psychosis disorders and is part of the treatment programme of Ward 21, but is also open to relatives of patients from other wards or outpatient departments of the University Hospital for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy.

The four appointments take place online every 14 days and are led by a doctor or a psychologist.

There are two important topics at each appointment:

1. you can talk to the group leader and the relatives of other patients about your situation and thereby experience support.

2. we give general information about psychosis illnesses and their treatment possibilities. This should help you to better classify the complaints of your relative and to better understand the treatment measures.

Specific questions about a person's treatment cannot be discussed in the group. We recommend that you contact your relative's therapist in this regard - with your relative's consent.

You can find the individual dates in our calendar of events. Please register in advance for each date you would like to attend via the calendar date. You will then receive the access data.

We look forward to talking with you!
