Psychiatry

La pleine conscience est une pratique méditative aux bénéfices positifs sur la santé. Développée aux Etats-Unis dans les années 70, la pleine conscience a vu son champ d’application s’élargir au fil du temps.

Research

As a university department at the interface between security and health, the SMI carries out research in forensics as well as in general psychiatry, including the neurobiological and evaluative dimension.

Institutional Measures

Mission

Mission of the Institutional Measures Division 

The main mission is to take charge of institutional psychiatric measures in closed and open environments (Articles 59 and 64 of the Swiss Criminal Code) and to exercise quality control over outpatient monitoring (Articles 63 and 60 of the Swiss Criminal Code).

The Institutional Measures Division (SMI) was created in January 2017 in joint agreement between the Department of Safety and the Economy (DSE) and the Department of Employment, Social Welfare and Health (DEAS) of the Canton of Geneva.

It is affiliated with the HUG Medical Directorate and the Canton Office of Detention. Its implementation follows the gradual opening of the Curabilis inter-cantonal correctional facility in Geneva, which opened its doors in June 2013, and the gradual increase of the number of individuals with psychiatric conditions receiving court-ordered treatments.
