The Mental Health Research and Treatment Center (MHRTC) at Ruhr-University Bochum´s Faculty of Psychology includes the professorships for Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy and for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology as well as their associated postgraduate training programs and outpatient clinics for adult and child/adolescent psychotherapy. It combines etiological and treatment research in order to contribute to a better understanding of the interplay of psychological, biological and social factors as well as to sustainably ameliorate mental health care across the lifespan. Thanks to the support of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation and other funding agencies it features comprehensive clinical, experimental psychological, psychophysiological and psychometric/biostatistical infrastructure. In its outpatient clinics, each year over 2000 children, adolescents and adults with the whole range of mental disorders are treated using evidence-based methods.
