The Mission of the LIR

Stressors such as traumatic events, stressful conditions in private or professional life or physical illnesses can contribute significantly to the development of many mental disorders such as depression or anxiety. It is estimated that about 30% of all German citizens, both male and female, develop a mental disorder every year. Therefore, promoting mental health during and after stressful life events takes on a particular importance.

“We are working to understand resilience, prevent stress-induced mental illness, and provide knowledge, thus maintaining and improving public health despite changing working and living conditions.”

Due to the increasing digitalization and complexity of the working world, the acceleration of work processes and a simultaneous lack of time for recovery, instances of stress and the risk of developing mental illness are on the rise. With its research activities and science-based services, the LIR contributes to maintaining public health despite changing working and living conditions.

Offers for the public

An important focus of the LIR are our offers for the public. Following the motto theoria cum praxi (theory and practice), we present our scientific findings to the public in the form of lectures and workshops, which we offer for companies, schools and other public institutions, for example. Our Competence and Consultation Center for questions about stress and resilience, as well as our Resilience Outpatient Clinic for stressed citizens, are currently under construction.
