Service Description

Does your child have a mental disability or is at risk of one? Does this limit their participation in society? Then integration assistance can help.

Some children and young people are unable to participate in public life on an equal footing due to their disability. Integration assistance supports children and young people with disabilities so that they can lead a self-determined life. This integration assistance is aimed at children and young people with a mental disability or the threat of a mental disability.

Integration assistance is divided into 4 groups:

  • Services for medical rehabilitation
  • Services for participation in working life
  • Services for participation in education and
  • Services for social participation

Integration assistance can take the form of

  • in outpatient form, outside of inpatient facilities, for example school support
  • in day facilities for children or in other day-care facilities
  • in day and night facilities and other forms of accommodation
  • Placement in full-time care (for suitable persons; in accordance with Section 35a Para. 2 No. 3 SGB VIII)

A mental disability can be, for example, an anxiety disorder, depression, psychosis, autism, ADHD or an eating disorder.

In addition to mental disabilities, there are also physical and mental disabilities. Integration assistance may also be available for these. Other agencies may be responsible for this. Ask your youth welfare office which office is responsible for you.
