Mutmachleute Self-Help Forum

You are looking for a support group, but there is none near you or you don’t dare to go there?
Want to share with others who have similar mental health challenges?
Our self-help forum offers you the opportunity to exchange information with other affected persons, but also with relatives and experts – simply from the comfort of your own home. And in a “protected” space – not like an open forum on the Internet or Facebook groups.

The Mutmachleute self-help forum

The exchange takes place here in protected “rooms”. The communication between moderators – who are often (former) victims – and users takes place on a one-to-one basis. In this way, we create a non-public forum for users to exchange ideas. Facebook groups and the like are not protected spaces and pose a significant problem under data protection law. We grant anonymity and data protection here. No one has access to your data and forums except yourself and the moderators you talk to. Only our administrators from Mutmachleute e.V. randomly check the forums for abuse and follow up on reported cases.
