The pilot project “For K” provides, for each Court of Appeal, for the development of a care pathway specifically for young people with psychiatric problems who are subject to a court order.[1]

156 beds for youngsters under judicial control having a psychiatric problem

Intensive treatment units have been set up for young people who have committed an offence described as a crime (MOF in Dutch) or for young people with a troubled upbringing situation (TUS).

Moreover, each project has a number of K-crisis beds that are not counted in the number of recognised K-beds.

In Brussels, this provision is complemented by a form of Sheltered Housing (8 places) for young people with psychiatric problems with a court order.
