Abstract

Child and adolescence mental health conditions are common in Primary Care (PC). In most cases, Mental Health Services (MHS) will achieve a good response in an outpatient basis. However, certain symptoms may indicate seriously damaged psychic structures, as found in Severe Mental Disorders (SMD), whose ambulatory care in PC and MHS may not be sufficient.

Pradera de San Isidro Mental Health Day Care Hospital-Educational Therapeutic Centre (DCH-ETC) is part of Madrid Regional Mental Health Care Services, attending children and adolescents with SMD in a outpatient intensive program.

DCH-ETC comprises a Children Unit attending patients of 6 to 11 years and an Adolescents Unit for patients from 12 to 17 years. A team of teachers is responsible for the continuing academic education of patients.

With a Therapeutic Community model, the program aims to provide corrective emotional experiences leading to a deep and significant improvement in SMD.
