Youth Psychiatric Services provides individualized assessment and treatment by a team of professionals.

This team has specialized training in treating mental illness and youth with serious emotional and cognitive disorders. The ultimate goal of Psychiatric Services is to achieve stabilization while working collaboratively with the youth’s primary care physician in order to transfer the youth back to them to provide the long-term ongoing care and support for the youth’s physical and mental health needs.
