Advisory boards

Research and patient care require constant suggestions and constructive criticism in order to ensure the high standards we set in these areas. For this purpose, the Center of Mental Health (CMH) is supported by two expert advisory boards whose members regularly review our performance and suggest potential improvements.

Patient Advisory Board

"Affected persons and their relatives are ultimately part of the treating team and we as professional therapists are dependent on their continuous feedback". With these words, the board of the Center of Mental Health (CMH) established a patient advisory board in September 2020 to systematize and broaden the mutual flow of information. The committee, which meets once a year and advises the CMH board from the patients' perspective, is made up of representatives of self-help groups, associations of relatives and supporting institutions.

Members of the Patient Advisory Board (12, Selection)

International scientific advisory board

Scientists from all over the world belong to this board, who are leaders in the field of psychiatry research. Every two years, the team of experts informs itself about the goals, procedures and results of our research at the science conference organized by the CMH, provides information on strategic development and supports the research teams of the CMH.
