What is it about?

The LeLi day center is the first facility of its kind to close the gap between inpatient and outpatient treatment for people who suffer from eating disorders. It aims to reconcile therapy and everyday life. LeLi offers low-threshold, multimodal and individual therapy programs for their participants. There are also offers for affiliates and family members to receive support. Another goal is to remove the taboo surrounding eating disorders through public relations work and to carry out preventive work with workshops in various social institutions (e.g. schools, counseling centers).
