From admission to discharge
You will attend a discharge appraisal
Before you are discharged, you will attend a discharge appraisal for a conversation about what will happen after your discharge.
If possible, your contact should accompany you to the appraisal, as should your municipal caseworker, if one has been assigned to you.
You are also welcome to invite someone along that you trust, such as a close friend or a family member.
You and your future situation will be discussed at the discharge appraisal
It is a good idea to use your treatment plan as a basis.
- The following may, for example, be discussed:
- Do you know how your treatment will continue once you have been discharged?
- Do you know what medication you have to take?
- Are your finances in order?
- Has your accommodation been sorted out?
- Is there somewhere you can go during the day if you are not at work?
- Have you agreed anything with your friends or family about how they can best support you?
- Do you know who to contact if you start having a relapse?
- If you are returning to work or a place of study, do you know how you can get started again?
Your network can help you in the transition from hospitalisation to discharge
Your network is important when you are to get back to your everyday life because it can be difficult to be discharged. The healthcare professionals assisting you, your family and friends are important in terms of making that transition easier.
Together with your contact, perhaps, or someone you trust, try to create an overview of your network: Who can you meet with? Who can you contact if you do not feel well?
Prepare a plan
It is a good idea to prepare a plan for what to if you have a relapse. You can draw up this plan with your contact or someone from your network.
The plan could include descriptions of your warning signs and what usually helps you alleviate your anxiety and agitation, and what others can do to help you.
Be good to yourself
Treatment after admission
You can get emergency help
If you need help urgently, you can contact the psychiatric hotline:
- Psykiatrisk Rådgivningstelefon: Telephone 78 470 470
This is Central Denmark Region's psychiatric hotline. It is open to all. You can phone if you yourself are going through an acute psychiatric crisis. Or if someone such as your friend, son, wife or neighbour is. The phone will be answered by a qualified psychiatrist. The hotline is staffed 24 hours a day.
- The emergency service (lægevagten) in Central Denmark Region: Telephone 70 11 31 31
The emergency service can be contacted between 4 pm and 8 am on weekdays and 24 hours a day on weekends and public holidays. In the daytime, consult your own doctor.

Livslinjen is a lifeline hotline that can be contacted every day of the year between 11 am and 5 am. You can also write to or chat with the lifeline.
You can get treatment from your GP
Many people continue to receive treatment from their GP. If you are to be treated by a psychiatrist in a private practice, you will need a referral from your GP. Your GP is also the first person to speak to about the possibility of getting help from a psychologist.
