At Palms Behavioral Health, we provide acute inpatient psychiatric services to adolescents’ ages 12 to 17. Our adolescent clinical team is led by a board certified psychiatrist. Staffed with mental health professionals including registered nurses and master’s level therapists, we are able to provide assessment, diagnosis and rapid stabilization of acute psychiatric referrals to less intensive, appropriate levels of follow-up care and support. Our goal is to effectively treat adolescents suffering from psychiatric, emotional, and behavioral challenges. We help them to improve their clinical status, regain their quality of life and return to daily activities in their homes, among their families and in their schools and communities.

Whether choosing one of our inpatient services or seeking to invest in an outpatient schedule in order to work with an adolescent’s school schedules, Palms Behavioral Health is dedicated to providing an environment of the highest quality: this means your child or adolescent will feel safe and comfortable, which can help in opening up and addressing key points.
