The Agency for Care and Health recognises the psychiatric hospitals in Flanders and one psychiatric hospital in the Brussels-Capital Region. A psychiatric hospital offers treatment and care for patients with severe mental problems. The hospitals have specialised units for this.
The implementation and monitoring of compulsory admission ((opent in nieuw venster)) to a psychiatric hospital comes entirely under the authority of the Flemish Care Inspectorate (Dutch: Zorginspectie).
You can find further information on psychiatric hospitals ((opent in nieuw venster)) on the Agency for Care and Health website.
