After registering you, we will schedule a first
appointment for intake as soon as possible. During the intake procedure we will
assess the nature, severity and course of your psychological problems and the
possibilities for psychological treatment.
When you want the cost for treatment reimbursed by
your health insurance, it is important to bring your referral from your general
practitioner to the first appointment. It is also obligatory for us to check
your identity on your identity card.

It might sometimes occur that the initial intake does
not provide enough information to decide on the diagnosis or treatment course.

patients with very severe psychiatric problems, especially when there is a risk
for severe psychological crisis, we then advise people to seek help at PsyQ or
another major GGZ treatment center.
