For inpatient hospitalization – a child’s guardian can call us directly to admit their child. A referral can also be made by a primary physician, community mental health center, school counselor, hospital emergency department, case manager, or another person involved in a child’s wellbeing. Guardian consent is required for admission. Learn about our inpatient care.

Please note: Inpatient hospitalization is for youth who are actively experiencing a mental health emergency and displaying unsafe behaviors that make them a threat to themselves or others. For immediate intervention in an active emergency, go to your local emergency room or community mental health center right away, or call 911. You can also call the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988.

For non-emergent needs, we offer residential treatment.

For residential treatment – admission begins with a referral from the child’s insurance company or community mental health center. Guardian consent is required for admission. Learn about our residential care.
