Inpatient Psychiatry

We have one focus: kids.

We have advanced training in helping children and teens with emotional, behavioral and developmental disorders. In addition to providing care on our inpatient unit, we offer outpatient consultation to young people dealing with the stress of a chronic medical condition, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. We also provide consultation for children admitted for medical and/or surgical care who may also be experiencing emotional or mental health issues.

If your child or teen is experiencing a mental health crisis, our behavioral health emergency services, located within Akron Children's Hospital's emergency department, is dedicated to evaluating and treating children and teens who present to our ER with mental and behavioral problems.
