The Psychiatric Health Facility is a 16-bed, 24-hour acute
non-medical facility. The facility provides a safe environment for
voluntary and involuntary clients needing acute care for mental illness
to receive support and treatment.
During an average stay of 3 to 5 days,
professional staff and clients work together to restore and maintain
each individual's optimal physical and emotional well being in a
therapeutic atmosphere. Each individual and their family are
encouraged to actively participate in their own care, and treatment
planning. In addition, the staff works toward returning the individual
to the best possible existence within the community at the least
restrictive level of care.
