About the department

The department of outpatient psychiatry at Regio Hospital Elmshorn performs medical care for patients with mental disorders. The department has 110 inpatient and 45-day clinic treatment places. The day clinic also can accommodate mothers with infants up to twelve months together. Extensive psychological and somatic diagnostics are carried out on all patients. The department has the central laboratory and the X-ray department, including CT and MRI, at its disposal for diagnostic purposes. Furthermore, the department offers comprehensive psychological diagnostics and electroencephalographic examinations (EEG). An interdisciplinary team of psychologists, therapists, psychiatrists, physiotherapists and nurses make every effort to create an individual treatment concept and the fastest possible recovery for the patient.

High-qualified doctors use psycho- and social-therapeutic-oriented therapy because the treatment of mental disorders is usually very complex. Therefore, both depth psychology and behavioural therapy methods are offered. Drug therapy is carried out according to international guidelines on a scientific basis. The department also provides ergotherapy, physiotherapy (e.g. sports, exercise pools, massage) and relaxation therapies. Due to the close spatial and technical connection to the somatic clinical areas, the treatment of physical illnesses is guaranteed.
