Mental Health First Aid – Help with Mental Health Problems


Almost half of all people suffer from a mental disorder or mental health problems during their lifetime. There are many factors that facilitate such a crisis, such as dramatic life events, worries about the future, anxiety during the pandemic, etc.

If you are a postdoc at the University of Freiburg and have been feeling down or burnt out for some time, or are experiencing persistent mental stress that is significantly complicating your daily life, I am here for you.

As part of the Postdoc Qualification Program, you will quickly receive first aid for mental health problems, and we will provide straightforward contact with other sources of help. As a certified Mental Health First Aid first responder, I don't do diagnostics and I'm not a therapist, but I am able to talk to you about your mental health issues and refer you to the people who can help you in your particular case. All counseling services are strictly confidential.

Feel free to call or email me if you are in a mental health crisis situation and need help. My consulting hours are on Wednesdays from 4-5 pm.
