IPB shows exhibition on ways out of the depression
The IPB Health Management Team offers information on mental health this year. For this purpose, Barbara Wolf organized a touring exhibition of the German Depression Aid Foundation for the institute. The exhibition's theme is "Way out of the depression" and shows pictures created by people with depression. The presentation will be on display in our corridors and foyers from 5.10. to 4.11.2020. With their photographs, paintings and graphics, the artists share their own experiences and perspectives on this disease and encourage others to find their own way out of depression. All presented pictures are winners of various creative competitions of the German Patient Congress Depression.
In addition, there was a special event at the institute on October 6, 2020, during which the foundation’s chairman Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hegerl gave a very interesting lecture on the development and treatment options for depression. Afterwards, documentaries on the disease were shown in the Kurt Mothes lecture hall.
The German Depression Aid Foundation has set itself the goal of improving care for people suffering from depression and reducing suicides in Germany. In addition to research activities, the foundation offers all those affected and their relatives a wide range of information and assistance.
