Now more than ever, mental illness is at the forefront of the public health discussion. Recent research shows that mental illness is more common—and much more severe—than previously believed. No longer are people being told to “toughen up” or “just don’t think about it.” Instead, they’re being treated with the same urgency and level of care that a physical injury would get.
Children's Intermediate Inpatient Care
For adolescents and children over the age of 8, long-term care may be necessary to stabilize and treat dangerous behaviors.
Our Approach to Longer-term Inpatient Behavioral Healthcare for Youths
Our 12-bed intermediate care unit is directly partnered with the New Jersey Division of Children and Families. We provide treatment and support to youths in crisis, usually for between 2-4 weeks.
If your child or loved one is exhibiting imminently dangerous symptoms, seek help in a local emergency department immediately. Individuals can also be admitted through a traditional intake exam.
