University Health provides inpatient care for adults and outpatient Behavioral Health services for patients who also receive their primary medical care from a University provider.
Our inpatient psychiatric unit treats adults experiencing acute symptoms. We diagnose and treat your acute symptoms in our hospital before referring you to community-based programs for follow-up care.
If you are having a mental health emergency – especially if you are having thoughts of suicide or self-harm – please call 911 immediately, or dial the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
Young people can experience mental health symptoms as a result of trauma, life stress or other issues. If your child receives his or her primary medical care from one of University Health's pediatricians, he or she can be seen by a child and adolescent psychiatrist for psychiatric medication management. If your child has ADHD, he or she can be involved in our partner’s outpatient therapy program called PROXIMA.
University Hospital does not offer inpatient psychiatric services for children or adolescents at this time. Instead, we work closely with several facilities to help your child get the care he or she needs.
If your child is having a mental health emergency – especially if he or she has said anything about self-harm – please call 911 immediately, or dial the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255
