German-Russian Society for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosocial Health
Germany is home to several million people who come from the countries of the former Soviet Union. Your everyday life spans two cultures, languages and ways of life – a task that demands a lot from everyone, but not everyone does equally well. Many feel overwhelmed with this living situation. Social isolation, resignation or even mental illness are often the result.
The German-Russian Society for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosocial Health (DRGPP) wants to support Russian-speaking migrants in breaking this negative development spiral and strengthening their psychosocial resources.
The DRGPP wants to improve the psychosocial care of Russian-speaking migrants in Germany.
