Marquette General Behavioral Health
Youth/Adolescent Psychiatric Unit
The Youth Psychiatric Unit is a 6-bed unit providing services to children and adolescents ranging in age from 3 to 17 years old. Services provided include pharmacotherapy, individual psychotherapy, group therapy, family counseling, occupational therapy, educational activities, individual/group nursing activities, and recreational therapy.
The goal of the program is to identify and stabilize the acute psychiatric problems that bring youth into care. Through family and group therapies the program is geared to return the child to home, school and outpatient treatment as quickly and safely as possible, where they continue recovery.
The inpatient program is for youth, ages up to 18, whose psychiatric symptoms prevent them from functioning safely in the home, school or community. Skilled psychiatric care is provided around the clock, seven days a week. Families are important contributors to treatment and therefore family involvement is encouraged and expected, including visitation and family meetings. Daily activities may include social skills, academic instruction, group participation, coping and skills development. Staff work closely with families to make sure that the child leaves the inpatient setting with appropriate follow-up care in place.
Each young person and family in the program works with a treatment team that consists of a board certified psychiatrist, occupational and recreation specialist, psychiatric nurses, and other mental health specialists. Members of this team have extensive experience and training in child and adolescent care.
Secure and attractive environment with therapy and activities designed to address the problems and challenges that may be preventing you from realizing your true potential.
