With respect to concepts of mental health and disease, Heinz criticized the view that mental disorders can be understood referring to a concept of “normality”; he argues that the frequency in which mental disorders are present (e.g. rising rates of Alzheimer’s Dementia in old age) does not offer a valid criterion to decide whether a certain state can be understood as a disease or not. Instead, Heinz suggests that discussions about mental maladies should distinguish between the medical (“disease”) aspects of any disorder, the subjective illness experience (centered about individual suffering) and impairments in social participation (the “sickness” aspect of a mental malady). Heinz suggests that a clinically relevant mental malady should only be diagnosed, if the disease criterion and either the illness or sickness criterion are fulfilled. With respect to the medical aspect, Heinz claims that the disease criterion of a mental malady is only fulfilled if an impaired mental function is generally relevant for survival or at least the ability of the afflicted person to live with other human beings in a common world (“Mitwelt”). With respect to clinical practice, Heinz suggests that medically relevant symptoms of mental disorders such as a delirium or dementia are directly life-threatening, while key symptoms of psychosis and major affective disorders can impair the ability of an afflicted person to live with others, e.g. because own intentions and acts are attributed to outside forces such as “imperative acoustic hallucinations” or “inserted thoughts”. Heinz emphasizes that such impairments at the symptom or disease level of a mental disorder are not sufficient to diagnose a clinically relevant mental malady, because some subjects experience acoustic hallucinations (thus fulfilling the disease criterion) but neither suffer from them nor are impaired in social participation. He claims that in such cases, no clinically relevant mental malady should be diagnosed. Heinz suggests focusing the mental health care system on subjects with clinically relevant mental maladies in order to promote inclusion in the community and on the work place.

Since 2009, he has been a member of the board of the German Association for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Neurology. He is the leader of several research projects including the international research project “Mental Health and Migration”. He is a proponent of a person centered approach and open wards in psychiatry.
