Adolescent Extended Treatment Centre

The Adolescent Extended Treatment Centre will be located at The Prince Charles Hospital campus in Chermside, Brisbane, for adolescents across Queensland with severe and complex mental health issues. The service will provide inpatient treatment and rehabilitation for an extended period that fully integrates mental health and educational/vocational training. The centre will have 12 residential places/beds (with a statewide catchment) and 10 day treatment places (local community catchment).
