Our team

We introduce ourselves


Lutz Augustin

I was born in 1980. After finishing secondary school at the cooperative comprehensive school, I completed an apprenticeship as a central ventilation and heating engineer.

During my apprenticeship I realized that this was not my destiny, so I created a second mainstay and started as a self-employed person after finishing my apprenticeship. Due to a serious car accident and the resulting physical deficits, I had to realize that I could no longer maintain my independence.

This created great psychological problems and I fled into the use of illegal substances.

Fate was kind to me, I overcame my dependence, became the father of two wonderful daughters and worked in a leading position in the mineral oil industry until the end of 2019.

For years I had been willing to do something good and so it happened that our paths of suffering crossed and we considered our ideas in a joint stay in hospital. "It was brilliant how our ideas led to this wonderful enterprise".

My main motive for starting this company is easily explained.

We are one world! Boundaries only exist if we create them. I will spend my energy to break the boundaries of silence and condemnation, and to end the stigmatization of mentally ill people! "Get out of the grey area".



Moin moin!
I am Ylva and was born in Wilhelmshaven in 1999 and moved to Bremen in the summer of 2020 for my studies. Through my studies I am on the best way to become a social worker.

Before that I did a lot in the arts and also learned through the arts what skills are and how best to use them when under stress.

I would like to pass this on, gladly also via social media!
For my age, I already have some experience in dealing with mentally ill people, and I would like to contribute and use this experience. My most important concern is to contribute to the destigmatization of mental illness and to help people get back on their feet.

I like to take advantage of my age by assisting younger sufferers, and I also like to answer questions on social media, and help raise awareness.

With questions, suggestions or other things I am to you/you gladly with e-mail at the disposal:
