Landesverband Hessen der Angehörigen psychisch Kranker e.V.

Why do we need the Landesverband?

Developments in psychiatry cannot proceed without or against the affected families. The Hessen Association of Family and Friends was inaugurated with this concept at heart in 1988 in Offenbach. Group dialogues are not sufficient to support family and friends of people with mental illness. They must vocalize their needs to institutionalizations as well as state and federal political representatives. The affected person should be the focus of attention and not the institution - that is the goal of the association.

We work together with professionals in medicine, pharmacy, and sychosocial consulting to represent the interests our association in various organizations such as the psychiatric advisory council in Hessen.
