Support the recovery of each person by:

  • identifying and making the best of the person’s potential through targeted assessments (identification of his/her personal resources and abilities)
  • supporting the achievement of concrete projects or goals that the person set for himself/herself (by bolstering the preserved abilities)
  • preventing relapses, chronicity, long-term hospitalization (by preventing disabilities or reducing their impact)
  • enabling the person to regain control of his life path and career path (by strengthening his/her self-determination)
  • supporting the person’s social insertion
  • improving the person’s quality of life
  • fighting the stigmatization

With the help of psychosocial rehabilitation tools:

  • Put the patient back to the center of care
  • Establish individualized overall assessments which will be returned to the patient for them to keep
  • With the help of these assessments, establish an individualized rehabilitation care project (CombiMod) using care tools approved for a limited duration
  • CombiMod: specific care with individualized objectives. Step-by-step care, adapted to the development and objective of the patient’s rehabilitation by accompanying him/her along the recovery process.

Target population

Mode of admission

Any patient can go directly to the secretariat of CRISALID. He then only needs to submit a letter from the referring physician or psychiatrist.

Any patient or referring personnel can go directly to the secretariat of CRISALID to arrange an appointment to visit the structure.

Any doctor (psychiatrist or attending physician or medico-social practitioner) can submit directly a letter to the secretariat of CRISALID with the consent of the patient.
Upon reception of the letter, a preadmission file will be sent to the patient and his/her referring team. Once the preadmission file received, we will propose an appointment (motivational interview with the doctor, the neuropsychologist and the nurse of CRISALID) to the patient and his/her close ones. After the appointment, we will arrange individualized assessments if the patient is willing to receive care. After the assessments, a preadmission report/feedback about the care will be arranged with the patient and all professionals involved. After the report, a COMBIMOD program will be established with the patient, and if it does not meet the patient’s expectations, we will propose alternative care solutions.
