Hospital emergency room

Anyone who comes to the hospital emergency room can receive psychiatric assessment and consultation services upon obtaining a recommendation from the emergency physician.  


The psychiatric care units look after people with acute mental illness. Hospitalization aims to:

  • Stabilize the person’s clinical condition. 
  • Restore their functional abilities.
  • Provide the person with a safe treatment environment and the support required to regain their previous state of equilibrium.
  • Focus on psychosocial rehabilitation to achieve recovery.
