Child/Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatric Services

Program Description

Brynn Marr Hospital offers inpatient programs to meet the needs of children and adolescents who suffer from severe emotional problems, mental illness, substance abuse issues and developmental disabilities.

Young people may encounter such stressful situations that they respond with behaviors that are harmful to themselves or to others. Our program provides children and teens with the opportunity to learn more effective coping skills to deal with life’s experiences. Our inpatient services offer acute, short-term, structured treatment with close family involvement and community supports. The crisis stabilization period focuses on person-centered planning.

Person-Centered Planning

For each patient, appropriate treatment interventions depend upon the individual’s stage of recovery and his or her level of severity, disability, and motivation for treatment. We offer a person-centered/solution-focused approach to treatment that will encourage holistic well-being.
