Mental Health

Mental health is more than just the absence of mental illness. It is the essential prerequisite for quality of life and inner satisfaction. It ensures that we are able to cope well with the challenges of everyday life.

Boost mental health

The Fürstenberg Institute specialises in supporting companies in the promotion of sustainable employee health. There are several factors that play a role in mental well-being, such as:   

Resilience is the immune system of the soul. Resilient people overcome crises and challenging situations unscathed.

A heavy workload, too many tasks or insecurity at work can greatly affect mental well-being.

Our expertise in mental health

Mental health

People need good mental health to care for themselves, interact with others, and participate in society. However, mental health is primarily characterized by a good level of functioning and participation in life. People need a healthy psyche to take care of themselves and live the lives they want.

Stress Management

In order to be able to cope well with stress in everyday life, the focus is on acting in a self-responsible and health-conscious manner. In order to strengthen one's own stress management and regulate the stress experience, it is important to find out which personal stressors are triggers and which coping strategies are used.


A good balance between work and private life has a positive effect on well-being. It may well differ whether a higher personal priority is placed on one or the other. What is important is the subjectively perceived balance and good interaction between the two areas.


Being mindful means encountering the respective moment with a non-judgmental and accepting attitude and consciously turning toward what we are currently thinking, feeling and doing. A mindful attitude supports the development of inner clarity and helps to deal with stress, fears or challenging life situations.


Our mental resistance, also known as resilience, helps us stay mentally healthy, survive stressful situations and recover from stressful times. Resilience is therefore also referred to as the "immune system of the soul". People can learn to deal with crises and their own reaction to these stresses.

Burnout and workload

When stress and workload persist over a long period of time, a state of severe emotional exhaustion can result, the so-called burnout syndrome. The signs of overload show up at different levels - depending on the severity of the overload experienced, a wide range of symptom variants occur.

Fears and worries

Fears and worries are normal and meaningful reactions to threatening situations or changing circumstances. Even though they can burden our daily lives, fears and worries have a function. For dealing with fear, it is helpful to accept the feeling and find our way back into self-control when we have the feeling of being powerless.

Addiction and dependencies

Alcohol, intoxicants, medications, cigarettes or gambling - addictions can occur in various forms. They all have one thing in common: excessive consumption is dangerous to health. It is important to reflect on one's own consumption and to address people with conspicuous addictive substance consumption in one's own environment in a preventive and sensitive manner.
