The long-awaited Psychiatry Day Centre for children and adolescents has opened in Beausoleil, a joint venture between the French and Monegasque health authorities.
The centre opened its doors on Friday 15th September, following the signing of a partnership agreement setting out its operating procedures between the Lenval Foundation and the Health Action Directorate.
The new health centre, located at 46 rue du Professeur Langevin in the town of Beausoleil, aims to offer comprehensive outpatient care for children and adolescents up to the age of 18 who present with complex psychopathological disorders.
The centre has a capacity for 35 places, including 17 reserved for children residing or attending school in the Principality who will be accommodated exclusively upon referral to a child psychiatrist from the Plati Centre in Monaco, as well as a medical-psychological centre for children and adolescents placed under the authority of the Health Action Directorate (DASA).
The day reception centred will work in close collaboration with those involved in healthcare, medical-social, national education, youth and sports systems established in the Principality.
