What does LIFE offer?

​Mental health issues

Mental health issues

It’s normal at various times to feel sad, stressed, angry or anxious. But when these feelings last for longer than usual and start to affect your everyday life, it's important to find out what's going on and what you can do about it.

Prevention & early intervention

Given the wide range of prevention services already available in the Canton of Zurich, the objective of LIFE at this stage is to focus on "prevention and care", complementing existing services and making them more accessible: 
 

  • by making information about mental health and existing services more accessible

  • by organizing workshops and public events on key issues in child and adolescent health prevention

  • by establishing parent support groups, especially for families on the waiting list for psychiatric consultation. Parent support groups are designed to help these families proactively overcome the waiting period and develop greater self-efficacy in dealing with their children's problems.

"My stay at the LIFE allowed me to be completely open, to be myself.

In LIFE, you can always talk to someone and ask for help".
