We're pleased to announce the reopening of our Adolescent Acute Unit on July 1, 2019 following renovations.

Our acute services provide short-term crisis care for adolescents ages 12 through 17 whose psychiatric difficulties require emergency intervention by a team of mental health professionals.

These services are appropriate for adolescents with a recent history of being a threat to themselves, others or property; or have impaired functioning due to mental health or substance abuse problems.
