The department was established in 2007 in a newly renovated hospital building and consists of three departments:
  • Department for Treatment of Patients with Schizophrenia and psychotic disorders (40 beds)
  • Department for Treatment of Patients with Affective and Anxiety Disorders (40 beds)
  • Department for occupational therapy and rehabilitation.

Patients treated at these departments come here after being treated (and stabilised) at other departments within the hospital. After being discharged from the department, they are expected to take positions they used to hold in their family and social networks. Some of our activities are group therapy, occupational therapy, morning gymnastics, psycho-education, social and communication skills therapy, bibliotherapy, film therapy, wellness, breathing exercise etc. The staff consists of four psychiatrists, nurses, psychologist, social worker and a defectologist (educational specialist dealing with children/adults) with disabilities.
