We are a psychiatric hospital providing maximum care and treating the whole range of psychic diseases, from "classical" disorders as depression and anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, dementia and addiction, personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive and post traumatic disorders, to acute stress response, identity and life crises and burn-out syndromes.
Our Clinic, located at the Venusberg mountain, right on the edge of Kottenforst Wildlife Park, consists of six well equipped wards, with a total of 106 beds and numerous single rooms, an outpatient clinic with 15 beds, and an institute and university outpatients.
We combine cutting edge science with an accredited program of treatment in our Clinic, along with an individually tailored diagnosis and therapy program.
In this way, we follow a holistic psychosomatic approach, which assumes that psychic problems result from the historical development of one's life and individual disposition. The offered treatments are accordingly based on the three pillars medication, psychotherapy and the accompanying therapies, such as sports, occupational, art and dance therapy. In addition, we offer, in the areas of specialized behavior and psychodynamic psychotherapy and biological additional procedures, specialized therapy programs, which are also available in outpatients, inpatients and day-clinic-patients.
By virtue of the active clinical research work in our unit, we also regularly offer the option of taking part in research studies and thus in the very latest, closely supported therapy procedures.

For this reason, they played a leading role in the development of the evidence-based Dementia S3 Guidelines, the highest ranked category of guidelines in Germany; the Director of the Clinic also contributed to the Schizophrenia S3 Guidelines, being in the committee of experts.
