Inpatient - Children

When a child faces significant emotional and behavioral challenges and needs intensive psychiatric treatment, it’s important to ensure a professional, therapeutic environment where he or she can feel secure. Our board-certified psychiatrists help them face these challenges in our inpatient settings in generally a short period of time. For more information about inpatient services for children and adolescents call  850.469.3500.

We have a designated unit for children and adolescents located on a separate floor and away from adult patients. Our highly skilled, compassionate team can solely focus on these young patients to help guide them to a path of recovery from mental illness and substance use disorders.
