Psychiatric care Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Statistically, every third person suffers from a mental disorder at least once in the course of their lives. Mental disorders are thus widespread. But many mental illnesses are also well treatable these days. The psychiatric-psychotherapeutic help system in Rhineland-Palatinate is prepared for this finding and offers a number of individual help services for people with mental illnesses and their relatives. The help offers are organized close to home, i.e. mentally ill people should find individually tailored help in their region. The treatment of mental illnesses is carried out inpatient (in the hospital), semi-inpatient (in a day clinic) or outpatient (e.B. with established specialists, psychotherapists). The treatment offers are additionally divided into "adult psychiatry" or "general psychiatry" and "child and adolescent psychiatry and psychotherapy (KJPP)". For chronically mentally ill people, in addition to the treatment of the mental illness itself, there are also supplementary support services in areas of life such as "living" and "working" or in the structuring of the day. Furthermore, a large number of initiatives and associations in Rhineland-Palatinate are committed to the topic of mental illness. Relatives, who often face great challenges due to the illness of the family member, have registered with the Landesverband der Angehörigen psychisch Kranker e.V. a central point of contact. The Association for the Support of Community Psychiatry in Rhineland-Palatinate aims to actively accompany the change of psychiatric institutions and the development of community-based psychiatry in order to make the communities more open to children, adolescents, disabled people and their families. The Landesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Rheinland-Pfalz e.V. (LVPE) is also represented in the associated political state committees as an interest group for people with psychiatric experience.
