Better Psychiatry - Copenhagen - is looking for volunteer team leader for our relatives cafe.

A relative is one of the most important resources in the treatment cycle of the patient, and today we know that having supportive relatives around increases the chances of the patient becoming healthy or putting the symptoms behind him/her. But it can also be a burden to be relatives. In the Cafe we meet in an informal and cozy atmosphere, where it is the next-of-kin who is in the focus and where we share big and small from everyday life as relatives.

The café is open on the first Tuesday of the month from 17-19.

  • Be good at listening and being present.
  • Participate in team leader meetings 4-5 times a year and join as a member of the board of Better Psychiatry.
  • Want to make a difference for the next of kin

We can offer you
