Multi-area Part-time Therapy Reception Center

It is part of the Multi-area Part-time Therapeutic Activities Center of the Internal Transversal Division of the EPSM de la Sarthe (Public Institution of Mental Health of Sarthe). It is composed of 6 functional structures, all of them serving the adults, children and the youth of the entire psychiatric catchment areas. These two functional units which are CTM and CATTPI, inpatient and outpatient respectively, serve as liaison between different treatments proposed to the patient and develop more specific and professional care than proposed otherwise in these areas.


The center offers psychosocial rehabilitation care around 3 types of therapy: psycho corporal, cognitive and expressive therapies, in addition to the care provided by the whole EPSM de la Sarthe and adapted to the patient’s needs.

The center works in close relationship with other areas in order to provide patients with the care program the most adapted possible to their specific needs.
