The Franco-Monegasque day centre for child psychiatry received a visit from TSH Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene, in the presence of Christophe Robino, Minister of Social Affairs and Health, and others, including Mayor of Beausoleil Gérard Spinelli.

The 650 square metre building, at 46 avenue du Professor Langevin in Beausoleil, has been completely rehabilitated to offer comprehensive daytime outpatient care for children and adolescents suffering from severe autism spectrum and developmental and personality disorders.

The Princely Couple were able to meet the teams who presented to them the functioning of the establishment which notably provides multidisciplinary care allowing the specialists to take a different look at the child concerned and to enrich their assessment.

The capacity is 35 places, including 17 reserved for children residing or attending school in the Principality. Children and adolescents residing or attending school in the Principality presenting these disorders can be accommodated in this new establishment exclusively upon referral to a child psychiatrist from the Plati Centre in Monaco, a Medical-Psychological Center for Children and Adolescents placed under the authority of the Management of Health Action (DASA).

Christophe Robino said: “This day hospital is the result of close collaboration between the Prince’s Government and the Government of the French Republic as well as the services of the Municipality of Beausoleil and the Lenval Foundation. Commitment to the well-being and development of each child is at the heart of this initiative. To provide a safe, inclusive and therapeutic environment where every child can thrive in collaboration with experts and programs tailored to each individual. The objective is to work alongside families to offer holistic and lasting local support to those children who need it.”
