MIND AWARD 2022/2023

Current award winner

On October 15, 2022, the special award was given to well-known psychiatrist and author Dr. Hans-Joachim Maaz in a recording in which jury member Dr. Ruediger Dahlke (prize winner 2014) takes over the laudatory speech.

The reasons given by the jury for awarding the prize are complex. because Dr Hans-Joachim Maaz has a healing effect on his person with books and lectures, as well as with his foundation in a sustainable and social-collective way.

A first justification for his nomination comes from jury member Ruediger Dahlke: "Even in GDR times, as a doctor critical of the regime, Joachim Maaz was only committed to being a doctor and his psychosomatics, and this has now also been the case through all the crises of our time - he has remained true to his calling and his ideal like no other."
