Our Child and Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatry Service serves patients ages five through 18 who have symptoms of acute psychiatric illness or disorder requiring a safe, therapeutic, and supportive environment to assist with stabilization interventions. Admissions to the service generally occur on an emergency basis.

We use a team-based approach to evaluation and treatment of each patient, actively involving families and other care and treatment providers.

Teachers from the Rochester City School District also provide the school program and interface with the child’s home school. Discharge planning begins immediately after admission to prepare each patient and family to move to a less restrictive level of care as soon as it is clinically safe to do so.

We diagnose and treat children and adolescents with a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, attention deficits, and other behavioral problems. By working closely with the child, family, primary care provider, school personnel, and others, we ensure that assessment and treatment is designed to meet the needs of individual children and their families.
