Basel Early Treatment Service (BEATS)

BEATS is committed to the early detection and treatment of psychotic and other serious mental illnesses in young people.

Our specialised mental health service at the University Psychiatric Clinics Basel provides multidisciplinary treatment adapted to the individual needs of our patients. By supporting young people with early signs of a serious mental health issue, we aim to help them and their families cope in times of crisis, and to prevent the onset of the illness or modify its course in a positive way.  

In various research projects we strive to gain new insights into the emergence, clinical course and treatment of psychotic disorders, in order to improve individualised outcome prediction and the development of new treatment methods.
