Introduction - Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Division

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Division of Kenézy Gyula Camus, UD CC

The division with 50 hospital beds (20 acute and 30 rehabilitation beds) has been in operation since 1987 as an independent organizational unit and has been providing care in the current building since 2004. Its task is to provide psychiatric care for patients aged 3 to 18 and we also participate in the training of medical students, residents, specialist candidates, social workers and mental health professionals. This is the only child and adolescent psychiatry division in the Northern Great Plain region, providing care for patients from Hajdú-Bihar, Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok counties. Acute emergency admissions are available for Hajdú-Bihar county. We also see patients from the entire area of the country based on pre-scheduled appointment only. The annual patient population is 1,200.

In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of classical child and adolescent psychiatry diseases (depression, anxiety, childhood psychosis, and compulsive disorders), our division’s main profile covers autism, including its diagnosis, individual development and socialization of autistic children, as well as counselling for parents.

We also organize psychotherapy and self-help groups, relaxation trainings, individual and group special needs development, creative therapy, and play therapy for various age groups  During school holidays these activities are organized in combination with free-time activities, providing children with a camp-like atmosphere.

Children are accommodated in hospital rooms with four beds each furnished with modern pine furniture on two floors; the shower and toilets are available in the corridor. The department also has 2 gyms, a group room, a dining room, activity rooms, and a playground. With the exception of urgent cases, admission to the division and outpatient examinations at the specialist consultations take place by appointment. 

Appointments can be requested at the following telephone number: +36 52 511-889 (4031 Debrecen, 3 Bartók Bela Street). 

As part of the same organization unit as the inpatient facility, outpatient clinics (in child and adolescent psychiatry, child and adolescent psychology, autism) also function on our Bethlen Street and Varga Street sites, along with a drug outpatient clinic at our premises in Varga Street.
