Self-support group for relatives of mentally sick people

Region: Jena

Disease profile

One family member is mentally sick - the whole family suffers! Family members are often suffering with:

  • anxiety and helplessness
  • feeling of guilt and shame
  • isolation and overburdening
  • lack of understanding
  • prejudice and injustice

Goals and tasks

How can we help?

In our self-help group we want to try finding a way out of the isolation. We meet regularly.

  • we exchange our experiences
  • we invite experts from welfare, law, psychiatry and politics
  • we inform about low-treshold services
  • we build friendships
  • we just are together: celebrate and help each other

Group meetings

Please contact Brigitte Weyrauch per phone or via e-Mail. The meetings take place once a month.
