Parcours de soins et devenir d'une cohorte d'adolescents pris en charge en hôpital de jour‎ : à partir d'une étude descriptive

Abstract : Partial hospitalization during adolescence indicates the seriousness of the mental illness. This essay shall aim at describing the profile of teenagers treated in psychiatric partial hospitalization as well as their alliance in the treatment and looking into their medico-social mid-term outcome, based on a cohort of 100 teenagers. The study is based on a two-fold analysis: a retrospective part consisted in rereading the medical files; then a catamnestic study was led, based on a phone inquiry which used a semi-open questionnaire. The retrospective datas show the heterogeneity of the patients admitted, concerning not only the diversity of symptoms the patients displayed and thus the various diagnoses established but also their medical history as well as social background. The care process is marked by a difficulty to get 53% of the patients to accept treatment. When the catamnestic inquiry was led, informations about 89% of these young adults were found. The catamnestic datas reveal 3 evolutive profiles, from a clinical point of view: 29% turn out unstable with or without treatment, 3 of them being deceased; 34% are on the way to reaching a state of stability but it is still dependent on the treatment; 26% are on the way to reaching a state of stability without requiring treatment. The datas' statistic analysis based on the criteria of their commitment to treatment reveal two distinct types of subjects, displaying two distinct behaviors towards treatment. Young adults suffering from teenage psychiatric disorders which are not taken care of by institutions are at risk and as such, require to be watched over when treated and carefully guided through the whole program.
