Ankerland is a non-profit association. Severe traumatisation can affect any child. An accident or a natural disaster, violence or abuse – the souls of many children and young people are wounded every day. And there is still too little therapeutic help.
Ankerland has been committed to improving this inadequate care since 2008. Because just like the body, an injured soul needs intensive treatment in order to heal. The goal is to anchor our multi-professional therapy concept in standard care. Until then, we finance this much-needed work through donations:
The first intensive trauma therapy centre for children and adolescents in Germany, which works like a day clinic and was opened in Hamburg Eppendorf in 2016.
In the trauma counselling centre, parents, foster and adoptive parents as well as other reference systems of traumatised children and adolescents find help.
The Trauma Information Line provides information on treatment and therapy services throughout Germany for those seeking help and advice.
In 2018, we are organising the Trauma Days for the third time, a unique information and discussion forum for experts, those affected and the interested public.
