Sometimes mental health symptoms may become too intense to manage in a routine outpatient visit. If this occurs, we are here to make sure that you and your loved ones receive the care you need. An inpatient hospital unit is the highest level of care available and is typically intended for individuals who are experiencing acute or even life threatening symptoms of mental illness. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, and therapists have specialty training for managing these severe symptoms, and helping you to link to appropriate follow up care when you are feeling more stable.
This varies depending on circumstance. If you think you may be experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, you should call 911 or go immediately to the nearest emergency room. Staff in an ER will ask more about your symptoms and obtain any medical clearance that is needed before admission to an inpatient hospital. If you aren’t sure whether inpatient services are right for you, it can be very helpful to discuss this with your doctor or therapist.
Length of stay varies depending on a patient’s particular needs, but typically hospital admissions are quite brief. The hospital is a place to rapidly stabilize symptoms, make adjustments to treatment and medications, and connect with appropriate follow up resources in the community.
