· Out-patient Clinic:

Since 1986, famous experts such as Prof Xu Taoyuan as well as our many experienced child psychiatrists have consulted with families from across the country regarding their child or adolescent’s difficulties. The services at the clinic are provided 7 days a week, during usual business hours (8:00 am-4:30 pm, Monday-Sunday). The outpatient clinic offers comprehensive services which include mental health assessment, clinical diagnosis, supportive psychological counseling, psychotherapy,  pharmacotherapy and child behavioral training. Every year, about 15,000 patients from all over the country come to the clinic for both psychological support in managing child and adolescent psychiatric disorders, and for treatment of these disorders.  In the last 3 years, the number of out-patient consultations has continued to consistently expand.

The out-patient clinic is able to provide a comprehensive assessment regarding the following difficulties and diagnoses that frequently affect children and adolescents: oppositional/defiant disorder, conduct disorder, attention and hyperactivity difficulties, impulsiveness, anxiety disorders such as separation anxiety, depression, autistic spectrum disorders, and early-onset psychotic symptomatology.

The clinic also examines the entire family and environment, which allows the clinicians to determine the best rehabilitation plans and educational opportunities for the patients and their families. With several common mental disorders, for example, , we provide psycho-education for the parents of patients with ADHD, tic disorders, anxiety disorders, depression and schizophrenia. This process brings new skills to the parents in handling their child’s disorder, while the child themselves is also individually being treated

·The Children’s  Psychiatric Ward:

There are 25 inpatient beds for child and adolescent patients provided by the DCAP. This ward offers clinical services  for children with specific illnesses such as schizophrenia ,depression, , bipolar affective disorder,  and OCD. The clinic also provides services for children with issues such as general emotional dysregulation, behavioral and conduct problems, learning disabilities, and tic disorder. Most of the patients are treated using a combination of psychotherapy and medications. The psychotherapy includes cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy, music therapy, and group therapy, to name a few. Modified electroconvulsive therapy (MECT) is also a treatment selected for a small number of children with severe, refractory mental illness.

· Social Services:

DCAP also provides services which examine the social environment the child and family inhabits. These services include: 1. Evaluation and general guidance regarding mental health for the children at the kindergarten, primary, and secondary school levels, and 2. Community education in most suburbs of Shanghai city regarding the science behind child and adolescent mental health. DCAP was approved as an ADHD health education base in China by the Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China and is also able to provide significant support for to other training centers in Shanghai for the diagnosis and treatment of autism and mental retardation.
