University Hospital has an adult inpatient unit for treatment of mental or psychiatric disorders that cannot safely be treated on an outpatient basis. Services include assessment, interdisciplinary treatment planning, medication management and individual and group therapy. Comprehensive discharge planning refers patients for further treatment in their local communities.
The treatment team includes psychiatrists, a psychologist, psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists and social workers. Members of the treatment team may utilize other hospital consulting services as needed. Spiritual services are available to all patients.
The 18-bed Psychiatry unit offers private rooms. The unit is designed to provide a safe environment conducive to healing and recovery. A large, open day room and common areas create welcoming spaces for dining, connecting with others and recreation. Family and support persons are welcome to visit daily from 8am-9pm. Primary supports are welcome to stay overnight with nurse approval. Children 17 years old and younger may visit on B6/5 if they are supervised by an adult visitor.
