Psychiatry Inpatient Service Overview

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Located within the Department of Psychiatry, the Psychiatry Inpatient Service at Boston Children's Hospital is a 16-bed, general inpatient child and adolescent psychiatric unit. We provide family-oriented psychiatric assessment and treatment for patients who have often failed to respond to conventional outpatient or hospital care.

We have specific expertise in the management of patients who have both medical and emotional problems such as diabetes, asthma, seizures, eating disorders and inflammatory bowel disease.

Our goal is to help your child by stablizing them while in crisis, give you and your child skills to cope and return them to a more comfortable environment for ongoing care.

We are located on the 5th floor of the Bader building at 300 Longwood Avenue (inside the main entrance of Boston Children's Hospital).


Helping with Your Child's Psychiatric Hospitalization

We have created a practical guide to help parents when their child is facing an inpatient psychiatry admission.
