It is part of the PsychiatrieVerbund Westfalen (Westphalia Psychiatric Association), which cares for more than 140,000 patients annually in over 100 facilities and employs around 8,500 staff.

At the clinic in Hemer, doctors and therapists work with mentally ill patients to help them regain their mental balance and live as symptom-free as possible. A broad spectrum of mental illnesses is treated here. These include, for example, eating and anxiety disorders, dementia, delusional and obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, stress and burnout, as well as personality disorders. 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.
