Our Philosophy

The unit is designed for crisis stabilization; our goal is to move individuals to a less-intensive level of care as soon as it is safe to do so.

Individuals generally come to our unit for care when their behavior has become problematic or unsafe at home, after attempting suicide or experiencing suicidal ideation, or when anxiety is so severe it cannot safely be managed in the community.

Who We Serve

We treat individuals with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and more. We know this can be a scary time, and for many, this is their first hospitalization due to a mental illness. Our experts are here to help, and serve as a source of guidance and comfort.
