Ward N4 at the Psychiatry Center is a psychiatric examination and treatment ward for early adolescents of 13–15 years of age.

Ward N4 is a psychiatric examination and treatment ward for early adolescents of 13–15 years of age. Patients are admitted on a referral from the Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic or as a transfer from the adolescent psychiatry acute wards and pediatric psychiatry.

The reason for your arrival for examination and treatment may be your psychiatric and neuropsychiatric symptoms and the associated decline in functional capacity. At the beginning of your treatment, we will devise an individual treatment plan for you. In addition to surveying your symptoms and functional capacity, your examination includes assessing your family situation. Based on the results from your examination period, we will make an adolescent psychiatric assessment and treatment recommendation in cooperation with you and your guardians and our Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic. Depending on your individual needs, your ward treatment period may last from a few days to weeks. When planned, short interval treatment periods are also possible.

Our care community is safe and supportive. Your communal care is built around versatile functionality focused on the development of your interactive social skills. The aim of the treatment is to support your development and independence and the reintegration of your personality. The principle of our treatment is to encourage you to show independent initiative and responsibility suitable for your age level.

On weekends, the ward works in cooperation with Ward N5.
