Deletion syndrome 22q11.2

Deletion syndrome 22q11.2 is one of the most common genetic changes in humans. In about one in every 2500 newborn children, a tiny part of the genetic material on chromosome 22 is missing. This loss of genetic material, known as a deletion, leads to physical symptoms and frequently to mental disorders in the course of development.
The Center of Mental Health in Würzburg has been appointed "Competence Center" by the self-help association KiDS-22q11 e.V. Various professionals from the medical, psychological and socio-pedagogical fields as well as from occupational therapy and speech therapy work together in this specialised outpatient clinic. This comprehensive and multi-professional diagnosis and treatment can improve the quality of life for children and adolescents as well as for adults.

In the memory clinic, the causes of declining cognitive performance are comprehensively examined in several appointments, and possible dementia is diagnosed or excluded.

Mother-child clinic

The mother-child outpatient clinic is a specialised outpatient clinic for mental disorders that are directly related to childbirth. These include post-partum depression and psychoses that occur immediately after childbirth (Latin: post partum) and last for more than two weeks. However, the clinic also treats fathers and advises parents with mental health problems who wish to have children.

The main focus of the mother-child clinic is on:

  • Postpartum mental disorders
  • Mental health problems during pregnancy
  • Desire to have children in case of mental health problems

Consultation hours at the women's hospital:
The mother and child clinic is run in cooperation with the women's hospital of the University Hospital and takes place on the premises of the women's hospital, on the 3rd floor, house C15, Josef-Schneider-Str. 4. You can easily find your way around using the site plan.

Addictions
