The Fürstenberg Model - Mental Health in Five Dimensions
In order to define what keeps people mentally healthy, the Fürstenberg Institute has developed its own Mental Health model using scientific methods. These five dimensions form the basis of our work at the Institute.
What people keeps mentally healthy
Our work is all about making sure people get early and preventive support – even before serious mental stress occurs. For this reason, we have always been concerned with one key question: what keeps people mentally healthy?
Scientific studies provided us with the answer and led us to develop the Fürstenberg Model of Mental Health comprising five dimensions that provide the basis for our work. This model defines our understanding of what mental health is and how mental illness can be prevented, forming the foundation for what we do.
