Day care for adolescents (DSA) is an outpatient therapeutic workplace of the Psychiatric Clinic of the General University Hospital in Prague and the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University, which has been providing care for adolescents with mental disorders since 1999.
The facility has a long-term focus on the treatment of problems related to adolescent disorders (emotional disorders, adaptation disorders, psychosomatic disorders, neurotic disorders, eating disorders). Currently also on the post-covid consequences associated with the social isolation of adolescents.
DSA provides services with the goal of fulfilling the values based on Evidence Based approaches for adolescents with mental difficulties. Emphasis is placed on regular attendance at the inpatient facility, compliance with a regular regimen - eating, sleeping, and leisure time. A priority is also the support of adolescents in preparation for returning to school for the purpose of continuity in education.
The multidisciplinary team consists of doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, psychotherapists, addictologists, art therapists, occupational therapists, yoga and mindfulness instructors and other experts who participate in comprehensive patient care.
Services offered to patients are individual/group/family therapy, psychoeducation, coaching, art therapy, occupational therapy, yoga, and physical activity. For patients with eating disorders, a specific eating regimen is set up, associated with menu planning and the deepening of other competencies under the guidance of a regimen nurse.
The average age of patients is 14-18 years.
The length of stay at DSA is 6-8 weeks, at the individual discretion of the DSA management.
DSA does not provide outpatient psychiatric services.
Contraindications to admission to DSA are alcohol and substance abuse, treatment refusal, or a degree of mental illness requiring hospitalization.
The cooperation of parents with treatment procedures is a necessary requirement for the admission of an adolescent to DSA.
The daily fee for lunch is CZK 55.
