The CAP Department, headed by Prof. Tobias Banaschewski, MD, PhD, at the CIMH is specialized in top-level psychiatric treatment and research in neuropsychiatric disorders (e.g., ADHD, Conduct Disorders, Tourette Syndrome, Autism). Research on efficacy and safety of treatment for psychiatric disorders in youths is a main focus of the department’s research agenda. The CAP is equipped with 52 inpatient beds distributed in 4 units/wards plus an outpatient facility. The department’s outpatient clinic has about 400 new child and adolescent ADHD patients per year. The clinical and research teams include a total of 18 child and adolescent psychiatrists, and 12 senior psychologists, 5 post-docs.
