We make psychiatric assessments of adolescents aged 13–17 years and provides therapy when the resources of primary open care or open care adolescent psychiatry are not sufficient.

Ward treatment requires a referral from a physician or emergency services.

The following conditions indicate a need for ward therapy:

  • acute mental disturbance,
  • serious neurotic or behavioural disturbance,
  • self-destructive behaviour or intentions
  • serious eating disorder

The duration of the assessment and therapy periods at the ward vary between a few days and several weeks, depending on the needs of the individual patient.
