Special Outpatient Facilities

Outpatient Clinic for Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders are among the most frequent mental disorders with a lifespan incidence rate of 15%. In our Special Outpatient Facility we perform thorough diagnostics of the various anxiety disorders (e.g. agoraphobia, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social phobias) and potential accompanying illnesses, then work out an individual therapy concept with you. Important aspects of this work include information provided on the origins, triggers, sustaining factors and therapeutic possibilities for anxiety. We discuss with you the available disorder-oriented therapies (e.g. behavioural therapy, medication-based therapies, alone or in combination), and either perform the therapy ourselves or refer you to qualified physicians or therapists.


Outpatient Clinic for Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHS) in Adults

ADHS is characterized by the core symptoms inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness as well as disorganization and emotional regulation disorder. It begins in childhood and youth and, contrary to earlier assumptions, persists in adulthood in 40-60% of cases.

In our Special Outpatient Facility we perform disorder-specific diagnostics and therapy. In addition to an examination of current symptoms, diagnostics includes the patient’s personal history with the symptoms since childhood (with the aid of elementary school reports and, if possible, involvement of family members), how various facets of life are affected (e.g. education, workplace, social relationships) and possible accompanying illnesses. Based on these diagnostic procedures, we then formulate an individual therapy concept with you which may include, besides information on all aspects of the ADHS, medication-based treatment and behavioural therapy. At our ADHS Outpatient Clinic we also gladly provide treatment if your ADHS was diagnosed in childhood and you are looking for follow-up therapy.

If you are interested in participating in our scientific studies we will be glad to provide information on current studies.

  • Please bring along copies of your elementary school reports.

Outpatient Clinic for High-Functioning Autism in Adults

Contact: Dr. med. Xenia Solojenkina

High-functioning autism in adults, for which the term Asperger’s syndrome is often used, is a disease that is often not properly diagnosed although it does often require treatment. This disorder takes a chronic course and is characterized by impairment of social interaction and mutual communication as well as a typical pattern of special interests and/or stereotypical behaviours. Whereas patients who develop autism in early childhood often show reduced intelligence levels and delayed development of speech, persons with high-functioning autism are normally of average intelligence.

Our services are directed to adults with suspected high-functioning autism. Disorder-specific diagnostics and, as required, psychiatric-pharmacological treatment is offered that covers accompanying psychiatric symptoms as well such as compulsive or depressive symptoms. On demand we also organize group therapy on a cognitive, behavioural basis in which special communication and social skills are learned and trained. Please understand that we must restrict this offer of therapy by our Special Outpatient Facility to the region serviced by our clinic.

  • Please bring along copies of your elementary school reports.

Outpatient Clinic for Bipolar Disorders

Contact: Dr. med. Jutta Weikel

Flyer "Bipolar Disorders"

Bipolar (or manic-depressive) disease requiring treatment is diagnosed when extreme mood swings occur independently of real-life events. There are phases lasting at least two weeks with e.g. depressed mood, poor concentration, lack of interest and sleep disturbances, followed by contrasting phases of e.g. euphoric mood, “high spirits”, reduced need for sleep and enhanced self-esteem.

Disorder-specific diagnostics cover your current symptoms, the previous history of your illness and your biography. Equipment-based (e.g. MRI, EEG) or laboratory chemistry-based diagnostic procedures can also be used as needed.

  • Counselling: Following diagnostics the examination results are reported to you. On this basis we then discuss what therapy you would like to have and provide information on the available disorder-specific therapies.
  • Treatment: You will receive treatment in accordance with modern therapeutic standards comprising both pharmacological and psychotherapeutic methods.
  • Scientific studies: Our scientific studies research the origins and history of the disease as well as optimum forms of treatment. We will be glad to inform you about this opportunity during an appointment at our Outpatient Clinic.

Appointment service (keyword “peripartal“): Phone: +49 621 1703-2850

Flyer "Peripartal Mental Illnesses"

After giving birth, or even during pregnancy (in the so-called peripartal period), many mothers suffer from psychological symptoms. The frequency and scope of stress loads, stress reactions and mental disorders during the peripartal period are frequency underestimated, so that these conditions go unrecognized to a great extent and the women suffering from them receive no treatment. Postpartum depression is among the most frequent mental disorders in young mothers.

General therapeutic concept of the Special Outpatient Facility for Peripartal Mental Illnesses:

  • Quick first appointment (within a few workdays of registration)
  • Diagnostics, individual counselling and therapy concept
  • Continuous outpatient therapy possible throughout the entire peripartal period
  • Close cooperation with gynaecologists, midwives and obstetric clinics, psychiatrists, GPs and paediatricians in practices outside of the clinic
  • During your pregnancy we will work with you to establish an individual written therapy and birth plan (including description of the psychological findings over the course / prenatal classes /specific recommendations for birth / breastfeeding / postpartum period)

Flyer Special Outpatient Facility for Sports Pychiatry

Many competitive athletes are subjected to very high levels of pressure to perform as well as other mental and physical stresses including highly demanding training schedules. When these persons develop mental illnesses such as depressions, eating disorders, addictions or experience mental crises, they need medical and psychotherapeutic care that takes into account the conditions prevailing in competitive athletics. We therefore provide a special sports psychiatric / psychotherapeutic outpatient service for competitive athletes, their coaches and family members that addresses their needs for diagnostic assessment, counselling, therapy recommendations and/or therapy.

The Special Outpatient Facility for Sports Psychiatry of the Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the ZI is a member of a German-wide association of university special outpatient programmes founded by the Office of “Sports Psychiatry and Psychotherapy” of the The German Association for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics (DGPPN). The Office cooperates closely with the Robert-Enke-Stiftung.


Outpatient Clinic for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders

The clinical symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorders are compulsive actions (e.g. compulsive washing, checking, arranging) and/or obsessive thought processes (with content focusing on e.g. symmetry, dirtiness). These thoughts and actions force themselves upon the affected persons, are usually experienced as senseless and can cause considerable suffering and inconvenience. In our Special Outpatient Facility we diagnose both obsessive-compulsive disorders and symptoms within the framework of other diseases (e.g. Tourette syndrome).
We take your symptoms, previous treatments and therapeutic wishes into account and formulate an indication for further treatment (outpatient care or inpatient care in a special clinic, prescription of psychopharmaceuticals, behavioural therapy) and initiate these treatments. We also offer counselling for family members and partners as an important component of diagnostics and treatment


Special Outpatient Facility for Schizophrenic Psychoses

Contact: Dr. med. Susanne Englisch
Appointment service: +49 621 1703-2850 (keyword "Psychosis")

Schizophrenic psychoses can cause personal suffering for victims and family members as well as inconveniences in everyday life. In addition to typical psychotic symptoms such as delusions of persecution and illusions, the course of illness is often characterized by concentration disorders, lack of drive, reduced performance levels and mood shifts.

Our Special Outpatient Facility for Schizophrenic Psychoses performs disorder-specific diagnostics and covers the following aspects:

Diagnostics: Your current symptoms and history of the course of the illness including therapies attempted to date. If needed, diagnostics can be expanded to include clinical equipment based methods (e.g. MRI, EEG), laboratory chemistry and neuropsychological methods as indicated.

Therapy: A current, guideline-oriented therapeutic strategy is formulated based on the examination results. This strategy includes, besides medication-based treatment, ergotherapy and sociotherapeutic offerings as well as psychotherapeutic methods. Inpatient or semi-inpatient care can be arranged as needed in crisis situations.

Scientific studies: Our scientific studies research the origins and history of the disease as well as improvement of the treatments offered and in some cases include use of innovative pharmacological substances and modern examination techniques (e.g. functional imaging). Feel free to ask about ongoing studies


Schizophrenia Screening Clinic

This Special Outpatient Facility focuses on screening and treatment of schizophrenic psychoses. Schizophrenic psychoses usually manifest at the end of the schooling period, during university studies or professional training and thus affect patients during a highly sensitive, unstable phase of their lives (see link to flyer on this page). Timely diagnosis and treatment onset are therefore of the utmost importance, particularly in terms of preserving opportunities for professional and social rehabilitation.
Specific testing methods have been established based on many years of epidemiological research by the former Director of the Institute, Prof. Dr. Dr. Häfner and his working group on the early course of schizophrenia.
In the Screening Clinic (Management: adj. Prof. Mathias Zink), a clinical medical examination coupled with these specific testing methods is used to estimate the risk of development of a psychosis. For patients showing early signs of a psychosis, for example reduced performance, shifts in mood, thinking or social behaviour, delusional fears or perceptual disorders, an appointment can be arranged at the Outpatient Clinic by non-clinical medical practices (telephone: 0621 1703-2850).
The Schizophrenia Screening Clinic is networked as to thematic and personnel with other specific facilities that handle diagnostics and treatment of schizophrenic psychoses within the Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, thus facilitating optimized continuation of treatment, either entirely inpatient (Psychosis Ward 5 a) or semi-inpatient (General Psychiatric Day Clinic
).

Screening Checklist

Is your world falling apart? Are your performance levels dropping, is your mood worsening or are you becoming anxious? Are you suffering from unusual perceptions or have others said you have changed? A number of different symptoms may be warning signs of a beginning mental disorder, a situation often observed in puberty or in young adults.
In pursuit of the goal of early diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, the Screening Clinic of the ZI under the directorship of adj. Prof. Mathias Zink will provided an Online Checklist effective immediately. 15 questions can be answered with mouse clicks. After sending in the completed checklist a window appears in which – depending on the result – either further diagnostics are advised or contact with the Screening Clinic is offered.
It is important to remember this is not a diagnostic test, but rather on a recommendation. What is new here is the attempt to reach young adults with this offer on the internet, thus lowering the inhibition threshold for initiating contact with professional help. Use of the questionnaire remains completely anonymous and no personal data are stored so that users cannot be identified.
Currently, external homepages are being contacted and asked to install links to the Checklist, which is based on many years of work by Dr. Kurt Maurer (Working Group Schizophrenia Research
.
