The LWL Clinic for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics Warstein is a facility of the psychiatric association of the Regional Association of Westphalia-Lippe (LWL). The LWL fulfills tasks for the approximately 8.5 million people in Westfalen-Lippe in the areas of social services, the disabled, youth and special schools, health and psychiatry as well as culture.
Thanks to its decentralized location structure, the LWL Psychiatry Association is spatially close to the citizens and at the same time provides a first-class network of specialists. Around 9,000 staff are currently employed in 95 facilities for mentally ill people at 27 locations. The facilities of the LWL-PsychiatrieVerbund benefit from each other through a network of joint training programs and joint developments such as the electronic patient file, new treatment concepts, and networked quality management.
The clinic offers the complete spectrum of psychiatric services with the departments of general psychiatry, depression treatment, integrative psychiatry and psychotherapy, gerontological psychiatry as well as addiction medicine and addiction rehabilitation. In addition to the 273 beds for acute inpatient treatment of mental illnesses, the 43-hectare park grounds also offer 18 day clinic places. The addiction rehabilitation area has 120 beds. We also offer outpatient treatment options. A large service department is responsible for the infrastructure and administration of all facilities in the regional network.
