According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, four million children and adolescents in the United States have a serious mental health issue that impairs functioning at school, at home or with peers. Over time mental health issues can directly affect the atmosphere of the family. Just one more problem often tips the scale for individuals to feel like they can no longer cope. In crisis situations, our qualified mental health professionals work with children and their families to provide stabilization within the home or at our Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU).
The CSU operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week in partnership with the Richmond Behavioral Health Authority. It provides a safe, therapeutic environment designed to facilitate de-escalation and stabilization. The CSU is located on our scenic 82-acre campus. Youth can stay in the CSU for up to 15 consecutive days.
Mental health crisis can occur when stress, negative emotions, and/or reactions to a traumatic event become so intense that the individual has thoughts of harming his/herself or another person, or cannot perform daily routine functions. Harmful behaviors as a result of psychiatric instability may necessitate removal from the home.
