Inpatient Support Services

Acute Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitalization 

Inpatient psychiatric hospitalization is designed to help people who are going through a behavioral health crisis. Inpatient psychiatric hospitalization is available for individuals requiring psychiatric stabilization for behavior or symptoms assessed as dangerous to self, to others, or gravely disabled and require 24-hour care in a secure and therapeutic setting. These individuals may have symptoms of anxiety, depression, or mania, or may be experiencing altered thought processes. The length of inpatient care is determined by the continued need for such services. Discharge planning from inpatient care includes linkage and/or coordination with an outpatient provider.
