While the hospital remains an important element of the psychiatric health-care system, the fact that it is always the best place to treat acute psychotic episodes is still debated. After a brief review of the literature relative to the main existing community care models, the authors describe the development in the Department Universitaire de Psychiatrie Adulte (DUPA), of an alternative to hospitalisation for patient going through a severe acute psychiatric episode. They present three clinical situations and the aims of the research project, which will follow this pilot phase.
