anmodertationThe website is intended to give you orientation in a very comprehensive manner – relative to life with psychoses and bipolar disorders, paths to recovery and important help. It is aimed at people with incipient, first-time and repeated affliction with psychosis, as well as at relatives and professionals.

Psychotic states alter the way in which we perceive and process reality. They can primarily influence sensory perceptions and thought – so-called schizophrenic or cognitive psychoses  – or occur in connection with great mood swings – so-called bipolar disorders or affective psychoses. However, many conclusions apply across-the-board. Where necessary, distinctions are made between the disorders.

The website has the following contents and goals:

  • “Understanding” first and foremost involves a general understanding in order to reduce anxieties and promote tolerance.
  • In “Early recognition” you can find information which allows you to recognize psychoses and bipolar disorders early and find help.
  • In “Information” about psychoses or bipolar disorders, information on the respective disorder is communicated.
  • In “Therapy” of psychoses or bipolar disorders, information on psychosocial, psychotherapeutic and drug-treatment therapies is presented and special knowledge for in-hospital treatments is communicated.
  • In “Help for everyday life” you can get to know the system of care and are given some important tips for everyday life and your long-term recovery.
  • “Important information for relatives” involves various perspectives, special information and indications – also for clarifying one’s own situation.
  • The “Interactive therapy portal” is intended to expand on knowledge in a playful manner in 8 different learning units and give orientation when dealing with your own or another’s psychoses.
  • In “Download archive” you can download helpful brochures and materials on the topic.
  • In “Trialog” particularly important topics are illuminated from all three sides: persons afflicted, relatives and professionals have their say.
