Our Child Psychiatry team

The Creative Child Rehabilitation Centre welcomes children aged 6 to 12 years old. These children have long-term psychopathological disorders that require more intensive care than outpatient consultations. A proposal for intensive care is offered, with a multi-week reception, on therapeutic activities using various mediations.

Our multidisciplinary teams welcome and support children or adolescents suffering in particular from behavioral problems, problems adapting within their family or school, language acquisition difficulties, eating disorders, or even addictions. (drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc.).

Our Child Psychiatry department proposes:

  • 1 – specialized consultations;
  • 2 – receptions in therapeutic groups;
  • 3 – day hospitalizations.

It also participates in networking with partners involved in the field of childhood and adolescence. The Child Psychiatric Unit aims to offer children a therapeutic framework allowing the development of a diagnosis in its entirety, multidisciplinarity, and continuity of care with a work of construction in the network.

Child psychiatry is a medical discipline specializing in assessing and treating issues related to mental health in children and adolescents. At Clinique Tandem, our child psychiatrist acts as an expert consultant to the professionals on the team.
