Clinical activity takes place in the Psychiatric University Clinic, in the Mental Health Centre, in the staffed residential facilities and apartments for long-term patients, in the Outpatient Departments, and in other community-based facilities which constitute an integrated system of mental health care, dedicated to the residents in the South-Verona area (100.000 inhabitants) . It is run by the University of Verona in collaboration with the Hospital Trust and the Local Health Trust No.20 .

The last redesignation occurred in November 2013 and will last four years.
