A broad spectrum of mental illnesses is treated here.

In addition, the clinic trains health care and nursing staff and has its own advanced training and prevention center. The location of the clinic building in the midst of forests and meadows offers patients additional recreational opportunities during a stay in nature.

At the LWL Clinic Hemer/Hans-Prinzhorn Clinic, our students can learn to work with mentally ill people and accompany their healing process under medical supervision.
