About this project

MindMe is committed to making it easier and faster for people to find available psychotherapists. Currently, those affected have far too much effort and wait many months to years on waiting lists until their necessary therapy can begin. In addition to waiting times that can sometimes last for years, countless calls to therapists and just as many rejections are commonplace for people with mental illnesses in their search for psychotherapy.


MindMe solves these problems:
  • We help people who do not have the strength or the overview on their own in their search for available psychotherapists.
  • We support the complex reimbursement procedure for private health care services with work, know-how and resources. Often, patients can start their therapy in a few weeks instead of many months or years.
  • We take over some of the work for the affected person, such as contacting many psychotherapists and preparing the necessary documents for applications for psychotherapy.
  • We are always approachable and motivate people to stay on the ball in the difficult search. This is difficult for many people, for example, with depression.
  • We contribute to the destigmatization of mental illnesses in public and provide an informative platform around mental health and psychotherapy for affected persons, relatives and interested people.
  • Also planned: Educational work and workshops on mental health in the workplace.


For this we at MindMe ask for donations and your help:
  • Covering fixed costs so that we can continue to operate our platform free of charge for those affected. 
  • So donations are used for: Monthly rent, recurring IT costs, minor necessary adjustments to the website, loan costs (for the loan taken out to found and build MindMe), insurances, contributions (Hamburg Chamber of Commerce), office costs, salaries for permanent employees (currently one person; paid net salary should exceed the federal Hartz IV rate plus rent by a maximum of 25%) and occasional benefits for volunteers (honorary flat rate, training and further education, minor attentions; current number of volunteers: 1, planned: 2-3), and a maximum of 10 € per day marketing budget.

With your contribution you help us to continue to run MindMe and to offer it free of charge. We thank you very much for your help! :-)
