If you feel you cannot cope alone and need to be admitted to a clinic, you can go to the emergency center (Rettungsstelle) of the psychiatric clinic assigned to the district where you live at any time of day or night. If you suffer a crisis at a time when you are not near your home and you do not think you will make it there, please go to the emergency center of the nearest clinic. The staff there will arrange for you to be transferred.
