Adult Inpatient Psychiatry
Our Adult Inpatient Psychiatry unit has 18 beds, all of them in private rooms. We serve patients 18 and older who are not enrolled in a secondary school, with the goal of providing a safe and therapeutic environment for those in a crisis severe enough to impact their safety and/or the safety of others.
We treat a variety of psychiatric conditions including:
- Major depression
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Anxiety disorders
- Bipolar disorder
While you're here, we will focus on three areas:
- Assessment: Identifying why you are in the hospital.
- Stabilization: Reducing your symptoms.
- Discharge Planning: Returning to your community.
The care and treatment you receive here is just the first step in your journey. Preparing you for your discharge begins on the day you are admitted. While our initial goal is to stabilize you, we are also focused on helping you build the skills and resources you will need to stay well beyond our walls. You will be encouraged to connect with community agencies and groups while you are with us; our Medical Village helps foster those connections by providing dedicated space for you to meet with our community partners.
The average expected length of stay is approximately 5 - 7 days.
We focus on problem solving, building life skills and situation perception training. You will be involved in groups that address coping skills and safety issues. We can help you learn alternative ways to deal with your feelings and emotions.
Your support person is strongly encouraged to participate in meetings (with permission from you). If there is someone you want to be involved in your care, please make sure you let us know. We can share information with that person but a release of information form must be signed first.
Visitors can play an important role in your health and wellbeing. Visitors are welcome Monday - Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
