The BBRZ MED GmbH is the first health institute in Austria to offer outpatient rehabilitation for people with mental illness. The advantages of this approach lie in the lower inhibition threshold in seeking aid from medical rehabilitation in time, as well as in the integration of therapeutic processes into patient’s actual lives.
The success of rehabilitation is ensured by a multi-professional staff, comprised of specialists for psychiatry, general medical practitioners, psychotherapists, psychologists, cert. nurses and orderlies, social workers, physiotherapists, ergotherapists and dieticians.
