Severe mental illness comes along with cyclic hospital re-admission, heavy losses in quality of life and stigmatization. Therefore a refinement of intervention is still required, for patients themselves and their relatives. In mental health services there is an international trend toward recovery-orientated interventions, like peer support. In Germany this is the first trial to implement peer-support area-wide in a metropolis. This article describes the implementation of the network, the methodology of the research setting and the baseline data of the randomized controlled trial.
