As part of the "Robert Enke Foundation on Tour" project, the Foundation is offering anyone affected by depression or interested in learning more about depression the chance to use the information platform to find out about depression and the help available to those suffering from it. In order to be able to make this offer available to people even during these difficult times, the project is being carried out in digital form. Interested parties and depression sufferers will have the opportunity to contact a member of the Foundation via an online platform from 17:00 to 20:30 CET on Friday 25 February. To do so, you first enter a digital waiting room. You will then be taken to the chat room by one of the Foundation' employees. This gives you the opportunity to have a private conversation.
The Foundation employee can be reached three hours before kick-off on match day using this link.
In addition, the mental health advice hotline is available free of charge on weekdays from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 13:00 to 16:00. The hotline's number is +49 241 8036777.
In addition, the Robert Enke Foundation provides lots of information about the disease and the work done by the Foundation on its website. You can find the relevant information on the Foundation's home page:
About the Foundation and other projects
In order to make it easier for outsiders to grasp and understand how facets of depression can feel, the "IMPRESSION DEPRESSION – a virtual reality experience from the Robert Enke Foundation" project was developed. The aim is to raise awareness of the disease among non-sufferers through a 15-minute VR scenario using virtual reality glasses, which shows facets of the emotions and thoughts that people experience in the world of depression.
