Summary :

Two clinical aspects are discussed this year for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Service of the Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc. They describe the help and care offers implemented to cope with the increase of mental distress situations of children, adolescents, and their families. The first part concerns the deployment of the reference center for Autism Spectrum Disorder, namely the establishment of an early stimulation group for young children awaiting diagnosis and a “parent training” group after diagnosis. The second part encompasses the consolidation of legal time within the SOS-Children team of the Clinics; where we will show the merits and contributions of this specific function in complex cases of child abuse.
