ABSTRACT
In this article the dilemma of psychiatry as a medical science is outlined as well as options, where we as psychiatrists should turn to. Open Dialogue as a therapeutic approach to severe mental health crisis is introduced and described in its principles and elements. A case description illustrates how principles and elements are set to work. Connections to the upcoming Peer Movement are drawn as well as to EU-Legislation about Deinstitutionalisation and the UN-Convention of Civil Rights for People with Disabilities (UN-CRPD). Finally the difficulties in implementing such a comprehensive approach are outlined to get closer to an answer, whether this kind of change has more of a chance or tends to be a threat.
