The Catskill Regional Medical Center Behavioral Health Unit (BHU) provides acute short-term inpatient care to appropriate adolescents and adults within their own community. The client who is experiencing acute mental/emotional and/or behavioral symptoms and requires twenty-four (24) hour, medically supervised, safe and structured care is the focus of our services.
Children under the age of eighteen (18) years will be serviced on the medical surgical or pediatric unit until an appropriate mental/behavioral health unit is available for transfer. Our goal is to avoid admission of children less than eighteen (18) years, but to assist in the immediate transfer from the emergency department to an agency that specializes in child/adolescent mental health care.
The primary goal of our services is to provide a therapeutic and secured environment, which will be conducive to healing and recovery from the acute emotional crisis and dysfunctional behavior.
