DZPG Partner Site


The Bochum-Marburg site pursues a translational research approach. It considers all relevant life contexts and development across the life span. Basic psychological research is combined with innovative preventive/psychotherapeutic intervention research. Seven partner institutions from the fields of health education, prevention and intervention, education and with expertise in data management, open science and cybersecurity support this research strategy. In the start-up phase, a digital panel for mental health research in Germany and two research infrastructures ("Youth Mental Health"; "Psychotherapy Research") will be established at the site, a population-based prevention strategy to promote the mental health of children, adolescents and their families in an urban context will be piloted, and the joint research platform with the German Center for Child and Adolescent Health (DZKJ) will be coordinated.

The Ruhr-Universität Bochum coordinates the Bochum-Marburg partner site.
