Adult Psychiatry

Adult psychiatry outpatient care services are offered at the Kuopio Psychiatry Center and at the Siilinjärvi Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic, which examine and treat patients requiring specialised medical care in the municipalities of Siilinjärvi, Juankoski, Kaavi, Keitele, Lapinlahti, Maaninka, Pielavesi, Rautavaara, and Tuusniemi.

Patients from all over Finland are admitted for inpatient care. Mood disorders and psychosis are treated at the Julkula Hospital. In almost all cases, treatment and rehabilitation are continued in outpatient care. Kuopio University Hospital also has outpatient clinics and wards that specialise in addiction psychiatry, general hospital psychiatry, and geropsychiatry.

Addiction psychiatry

In many cases, a drug addiction is related to mental problems, such as anxiety, fears, and unreal experiences. Addiction psychiatry examines and provides treatment for drug addiction and the concurrent mental symptoms. Patients visit the outpatient clinic for examinations and treatment. The ward conducts rehabilitation periods lasting a few weeks, replacement drug therapy assessments, and mental state assessments. From time to time, there is a queue for replacement drug therapy, especially with regard to patients with an opiate addiction.

General Hospital Psychiatry

The General Hospital Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic offers mental health examination and treatment services for patients from other fields of medicine at the university hospital. The general hospital psychiatry day ward examines and treats patients with physical and mental problems that disrupt life and the ability to work and function.

Geropsychiatry

Geropsychiatry is in charge of examining and treating mental disorders of patients over the age of 65 within the Kuopio University Hospital district. Mental health services are provided with the aim of securing the independence and mental performance of the elderly.
