Robert Schuman Center

The Robert Schuman clinic is located in Berlaimont. It is a post-cure psychiatric center specialized in psychosocial rehabilitation and professional reinsertion. We receive stabilized psychotic patients, patients with chronic depression with impaired social skills and patients with personality disorder. The clinic has 40 beds for free hospitalization. The admitted patients will receive assessments of cognitive and social abilities within the first 15 days. An individualized therapy contract will then be created. Every trimester, an assessment of involvement will be performed and an interim assessment will be sent to the original institution.

  • Chronic psychotic disorders

Mode of admission

You need to complete a pre-admission dossier which is available at the secretariat (03 27 56 78 00).

The original team and the patient will be received by a preadmission commission.

This commission is composed of a psychiatrist, a neuropsychologist, a psychologist, a nurse coordinator and a social worker.

After this meeting, the referring team and the patient will be informed about the decision.
If the decision favors hospitalization, an entry date will be suggested.

The clinic is contracted to the French Social Security system and is authorized by mutual insurance companies.
