  • Family-focused care: Caseworkers update parents and guardians on their child’s treatment plan and progress. We encourage family involvement through family therapy and visitation.

Does My Child Need Inpatient Psychiatric Care?

Emotional and behavioral disorders in children can range from mild to severe. Trauma, grief, major life changes or problems at home are common stressors for young children. Get help if your child seems “out of control,” disruptive or poses a danger to themselves or others.

Inpatient psychiatric care may be right for children who exhibit:

  • A prolonged sad mood or loss of interest in fun activities
  • Aggression, destructive tendencies or a general disregard for others
  • Difficulty focusing or keeping up in school
  • Nightmares or changes in sleep patterns
  • Obsessive worry or a compulsive focus on routines
  • Tantrums or extreme irritability
  • Withdrawal or isolation from family and friends

We offer stabilization and treatment for a range of children’s mental health disorders, including:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Conduct disorder
  • Depression
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Oppositional defiant disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
