Our Child Day Hospital, located on our Towson campus, is a clinically-intensive day program for children between the ages of five and 12 with serious psychiatric problems. This day hospital offers a structured, therapeutic environment with an array of treatment services, which can be utilized as a transition from inpatient hospitalization to outpatient care, or as an alternative to hospitalization for patients requiring more intensive intervention than outpatient services can provide. Services take place from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and include:

  • Evaluation/assessment 
  • Medication management 
  • Therapeutic groups 
  • Recreational activities 
  • Aftercare/discharge planning 
  • Family meetings 
  • Transportation provided on an as-needed basis

The staff consists of a multi-disciplinary treatment team comprised of psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, and mental health workers.
