About us

International Mental Health Network for Expatriates (MENTAL-HEALTH.NETWORK) is a registered charity based in Germany. It was founded in 2022 by a group of psychologists, psychology enthusiasts, and industry experts who currently live or have lived abroad. We have a deep understanding of the mental health issues that expatriates face, as we have experienced them firsthand. We are familiar with the sense of isolation and longing that comes with leaving one’s home country and adapting to life in a foreign place. We also recognize the challenges of intercultural conflicts and language barriers that can lead to cultural shock.

Our team offers crucial assistance and empowering guidance to individuals who are facing challenges such as language barriers, cultural shock, intercultural conflicts, prejudice, bullying, and abuse. We recognize the significant impact that these issues can have on a person’s mental health, and we strive to provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals can receive the help they need. Our team is dedicated to promoting mental wellness and supporting the expatriate community in overcoming the obstacles they may encounter while living abroad.

Mission Statement

At MENTAL-HEALTH.NETWORK, we are dedicated to assisting expatriates in finding relief from common mental distress. We achieve this by providing self-help support groups, a free soul hotline and public seminars. Our goal is to create a supportive community and offer accessible resources to help individuals cope with the challenges of living abroad.


At MENTAL-HEALTH.NETWORK, we recognize the significance of preventative measures and we are dedicated to empowering expatriates to increase their awareness of common mental distress such as stress, burnout, depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts.


Thank you for helping us to malke a difference
