Acute Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitalization
Inpatient psychiatric hospitalization is designed to help people who are going through a mental health crisis. Inpatient psychiatric hospitalization is available for individuals requiring psychiatric stabilization for behavior or symptoms assessed as dangerous to self, to others, or gravely disabled and require 24-hour care in a secure and therapeutic setting. These individuals may have symptoms of anxiety, depression, or mania, or may be experiencing altered thought processes. Length of inpatient care is determined by continued need for such services. Discharge planning from inpatient care includes linkage and/or coordination with an outpatient provider.
