LLI-336 Successful psychosocial and sensory rehabilitation for children and adults suffering from mental and behavioral disorders (SUPER)

Mental health is an integral part of the general individual and public health. Unfortunately, both Latvia and Lithuania are leaders among the EU member states by especially high incidence of mental and behavioural disorders.

Adults of working age are mainly diagnosed with mood disorders, schizophrenia, delirium and schizotypal disorders, and organic and symptomatic mental disorders dropping out of labour market. Such scopes of prevalence of mental and behavioural disorders make a direct impact on the social and economic development. Currently, mental and health problems in a general sense have been dealt with insufficiently effectively. Therefore, the project was focused on the fundamental change of holistic understanding in mental health with the application of conventional treatment schemes successfully together with evidence-based complementary methods – sensory integration in rehabilitation centres. The general aim of the project was to improve the accessibility and effectiveness of the psychosocial and sensory integration rehabilitation in the Lithuanian and Latvian cross-border area. The project offered new solutions for both countries.

During the project all four project partners successfully created and integrated an innovative holistic, evidence-based Sensory integration therapy. For the providing of Sensory integration therapy project partners in total equipped six sensory integration rooms and one outdoor therapy playground (Seaside Hospital, Liepāja). Palanga Health Care Centre adopted and applied the new RehaCom cognitive therapy in order to enhance the results of the Sensory integration. The RehaCom cognitive therapy will be provided for patients who need cognitive trainings. A new and innovative sensory integration rehabilitation methodology has been developed for children and adults suffering from mental and behavioural disorders. In compliance with neuropsychological symptoms, an instrument has been developed to be used in rehabilitation centres by specialists who intend to apply sensory integration. 111 specialists from project partner’s organisations have been trained. They improved their competencies in the basics of neuropsychology and working with newly created Methodology and Instrument in the sensory integration rooms. 595 patients were tested according to newly developed Methodology and Instrument in the newly created sensory integration rooms. Dissemination and sharing of good practice within the program area and beyond its boundaries have been ensured through the partners networking.

During the project consortium of four institutions successfully created and integrated an innovative holistic, evidence-based Sensory integration therapy for children and adults who suffer from sensory processing difficulties. All project partners have expanded their regular services adding modern therapy, which will be provided free of charge for children and adults with mental and behavioural disorders (project target group).

Palanga Health Care Centre developed the Methodology for the Treatment of Mental and Behavioural Disorders Using Sensory integration therapy for Children and Adults in the Latvian and Lithuanian languages (https://www.palangospoliklinika.lt/projektai-2/). The Methodology is dedicated for social and medical rehabilitation professionals (i.e. occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, etc.) who are working with patients who suffer from psychiatric and behavioural disorders.

The RehaCom cognitive therapy is provided for patients who need cognitive trainings. RehaCom help patients with their attention and concentration, in their performance of various memory and planning tasks, help with visual field issues and much more. RehaCom is used at a very acute stage of stroke recovery – and remains relevant through all stages of stroke recovery. It is also an excellent tool to help with aspects of Visual Neglect.

Seaside Hospital (Liepāja) developed the Neurosensorimotor Assessment Instrument in accordance with neuropsychological symptoms for applying of Sensory integration. The Instrument has been designed to test and understand the neurosensorimotor disorders of an individual with a psychiatric diagnosis of psychiatric and behavioural disorders, to plan and perform a neurosensorimotor intervention, and to assess the outcome of this intervention. Neurosensorimotor intervention is holistic intervention which has significant influence on sensory modulation, reflex integration and balance and has positive changes in human functioning. This specific instrument is integral part of the Methodology for the Treatment of Mental and Behavioral Disorders Using Sensory Integration therapy for Children and Adults.

All project partners in total equipped six sensory integration rooms and one outdoor therapy playground (Seaside Hospital, Liepāja).

111 specialists from project partner’s organisations have been trained. They improved their competencies in the basics of neuropsychology and working with newly created Methodology and Instrument in the sensory integration rooms.
