We are here for you and will be happy to help you find the right offer for you...


Information & prevention services

Here you will find important information on mental health and mental health problems. For example, you can find out what the signs of depression can be or how many people in Germany suffer from an anxiety disorder in the course of their lives. The websites also provide you with information about our health care system and the treatment options for various complaints.

If you want to take care of your mental wellbeing in a preventive way, various services can help you. Preventive services help you to recognise mental problems early, to treat them and, in the best case, to prevent them. They can help you live more consciously and be more aware of yourself and your needs. They can also increase your resilience to stress, promote your resources and help you to cope with challenges. The measures can take the form of courses in stress management or mindfulness, for example.


Intervention services

If you feel (acutely) stressed and are looking for help, telephone hotlines are a particularly good first point of contact. Without having to give your name or place of residence, you can talk to a person about your problems without obligation and in confidence. The experts on the phone will advise you on what you can do in your situation and give you information on support services. Some hotlines are available at all times, some only at certain times. With ama mind, we recommend the hotlines that match your issues, because some are specialised while others offer general advice.

Support groups are a place where you can meet and talk to people with similar experiences. The groups are there to share information and experiences and to give each other advice and (emotional) support. They are based on voluntariness and equality of all participants and ideally promote a sense of strength and togetherness.

Psychologically based counselling centres offer you a confidential and non-judgemental place for support with mental, emotional and psychological challenges, relationship problems, family conflicts and grief work, among other things. Here you can discuss your concerns, develop solutions with qualified counsellors and discuss options for further support. 

Interactive online support services allow you to learn on your own about how mental stress occurs and what you can do about it. Some programmes or online counselling also include contact with experts in the field. Online programmes are also available in the form of apps for your smartphone. This allows you to use them even more flexibly whenever you find the time in your daily life.


Treatment services

In psychotherapy, you can talk about your problems and worries with a specially trained person (psychological or medical psychotherapist). This treatment can help you if you notice that you can no longer manage your daily tasks, e.g. at home or at work. If you are thinking about psychotherapy, you can find out where there are psychotherapists near you on the website of the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KBV). You can make an appointment for a psychotherapeutic consultation via the appointment service (116 117) by phone or app. The psychotherapeutic consultation is free of charge for people with statutory health insurance and can be accessed without a prior referral from a GP.

There are digital health applications (often abbreviated as DiGA) that help you deal with mental illness. They are particularly useful to bridge the waiting time until psychotherapy treatment or to provide support during psychotherapy in consultation. These DiGAs are paid for by your health insurance if you need them. They are developed by professionals and are based on psychological methods, interventions and theories. They can, for example, increase your knowledge and understanding of your mental health and strengthen your self-observation and self-awareness. However, it is important to note that they do not replace personal psychotherapy or counselling, but should be seen as a useful complement.

We cover some of the most common strains.

Different types of mental health issues

Resilience describes the ability to cope with stress, adapt to challenges and emerge stronger from difficult experiences. Building resilience helps one to better cope with challenges, reduce stress and adapt to change. It helps to face stress more resiliently and to live more balanced.

Mindfulness is a conscious and present state of being. It involves the conscious awareness of thoughts, emotions, physical sensations and the environment.
