Because every child’s needs are different, every family’s experience and care plan will look a little different. Here’s a general overview of what parents can expect when they bring their child to MIND 24-7.
You will be greeted, and then you and your child will be shown to a private room.
We will listen while you and your child tell us about the concern that brought you in.
We will determine how best to help your child—with crisis or express care.
This may include medication and a referral to a mental health provider in the community.
Express patients can expect to be in and out in under two hours. Crisis patients are typically discharged in less than 24 hours.
A child’s safety is our top priority. If our mental health professionals determine a child could be a threat to themselves or others, we may keep them in our clinic for observation. Such visits typically last less than 24 hours, and patients are provided with a safe place to sleep as well as meals and activities during their stay. Parents are able to talk with their child at any time, and our mental health professionals are available 24/7 to answer questions.
We understand how to care for children.
No one should have to wait for mental health care.
Parents are able to talk with their child at any time.
They took such great care of my daughter. I will refer them to anyone who needs help in the future.
This is a much needed crisis unit for child and adolescent care and the first of its kind in the country that meets the immediate needs of children in crisis.
They made me feel very comfortable about the place and getting treatment for my daughter. Thank you guys. I really appreciate you.
