Many persons are thrown off balance over the course of their lives, they fall ill with a schizophrenic psychosis, suffer from anxiety that they cannot cope with on their own, acquire dementia in old age or need psychiatric help because they have addiction problems.
People with psychiatric disorders and addictions find an elaborate system of support at the v. Bodelschwingh Foundation Bethel. The methods of treatment and chances of healing are as varied as the symptoms themselves.
To help them competently, Bethel has established complex networks where out-patient and residential services and facilities cooperate closely. The networks include acute treatment in psychiatric and psychotherapeutic hospitals, treatment in residential and outpatient accommodation and career rehabilitation.
All therapeutic measures have one common denominator: success can only occur if the person wants to change. For this reason, mentally ill people are involved in the planning of their treatment at Bethel. They help determine the treatment goals and therapeutic process.
Bethel is represented with psychiatric services in the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony and Berlin.
