Children's Hospital offers the region's only designated inpatient
facility for young psychiatric patients. We offer two units, one for
children ages 4 to 11 (8 beds) and a separate one for adolescents ages
12 to 18 (9 beds). In our
protective environment, children and young people suffering from severe
emotional disturbances or mental illness receive intensive supervision,
short-term help with medications, evaluation of additional medical
problems and therapy.
Referrals to our services should be made by an outpatient provider or physician. For psychiatric emergencies, call (828) 213-4055.
