The Day Centre operates as a mental health unit for children, adolescent and adults with a variety of learning, communication and emotional difficulties, as well as psychiatric diagnoses. Based on the principles of social-community psychiatry, the Day Centre offers evaluation and needs assessment services, and creates and applies individual care plans including both personal and group therapeutic programmes and maintains regular contact with the users’ social framework (family, school, work etc). In addition, it deals with the design and application of prevention and mental health promotion programmes, and the community sensitisation and awareness-raising activities.
