Nyman Family Unit for Child & Adolescent Mental Health & Wellness

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Inpatient Program offers inpatient psychiatric care for a variety of childhood and adolescent psychiatric disorders.

Our state-of-the-art facility has 16 beds dedicated to caring for children with mood, anxiety, psychosis, behavioral and developmental disorders.

The unit is designed to be as calming for patients as possible. Throughout the facility we use soothing colors and imagery of nature to help reassure patients and reduce anxiety.

The nursing desk is situated in the center of our unit, allowing patients the freedom to interact with the milieu, while maintaining patient safety.

Learning specialists interact with patients in a diagnostic classroom where individual and group instruction is provided, and formal academic achievement testing is completed when indicated. When necessary, learning specialists will actively advocate for patients’ educational needs, and in some cases provide a comprehensive education evaluation with detailed recommendations.

Activity therapists (ATs) specializing in Occupational Therapy (OT), Recreational Therapy (RT) and Music Therapy (MT) facilitate groups that explore emotions and behaviors, teach new coping, work, and interactional skills, and coordinate fitness and leisure activities.Our activity and interview rooms are designed to be therapeutic and engaging for patients.
