At the psychiatric outpatient clinic, a multiprofessional team of people from various professions treats people with severe, chronic mental illnesses. Patients are admitted to the psychiatric outpatient clinic if they fulfil certain criteria. Many patients who need to be treated in the psychiatric outpatient clinic are so severely impaired by their mental illness that treatment by a practice-based doctor is insufficient. The goal of the multiprofessional treatment approach is to provide optimal care for patients, from diagnosis to guideline-oriented treatment, on their journey to recovery.

Below you can find answers to the most important questions about our outpatient clinic:

What kind of patients do we see?

Everyone who needs to be treated in a psychiatric outpatient clinic because of the type, severity or duration of their illness. We will evaluate whether or not you meet these criteria in a medical consultation. This can take place in our emergency unit, after inpatient or day hospital treatment at our hospital or after referral by a specialist in psychiatry and psychotherapy.

Do I need to have a diagnosis already?

You do not have to have a psychiatric diagnosis before you come for treatment. If you have a mental illness, you can make an appointment with us. Our doctors will check whether you meet the criteria for treatment in our clinic.

What happens at the psychiatric outpatient clinic?

To be treated at the psychiatric outpatient clinic, you must want to receive treatment. Together we will develop treatment plans and goals and agree on your individual treatment measures. Treatment in the psychiatric outpatient clinic is usually illness specific, multimodal and interdisciplinary and includes:

  • Emergency treatment
  • Psychiatric-medical and psychotherapeutic diagnostics
  • Psychopharmacological treatment
  • Individual or group psychotherapeutic and supportive therapies
  • Psychosocial assistance from social workers
  • Primary nursing and care at home
  • NADA ear acupuncture
  • Occupational therapy

How often do I have to go to the outpatient clinic?

This depends on the clinical picture and the current severity of your symptoms. Usually, you will come to the clinic once a fortnight or once a month. However, intervals can be shorter in times of crisis.

Do I have to register beforehand, and/or do I need a referral?

We prefer it if you register before coming to the clinic. You can contact us by telephone or in person. Referral by a specialist is desirable but not necessary in emergencies.
