Providing a safe healing environment

Our child and adolescent programs are carefully designed to offer treatment and guidance to young people struggling with mental illness or behavioral health concerns, and their families.

We offer both inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment programs to empower our patients to reach their fullest potential, including:

  • Adolescent programming
    Treatment for adolescents ages 12 to 17 with emotional or behavioral problems, school problems, family problems, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts, as well as support for transgender and LGBTQIA youth.

  • Children's programming
    Treatment for children ages 6 to 12 with significant behavioral and emotional problems.

  • Partial hospitalization
    Partial hospitalization provides treatment to young people following a hospital stay, as an alternative to hospitalization, or as a step up from outpatient treatment.
