What services are provided at the YFCC?

All youth are triaged upon arrival at the YFCC; not all screenings will result in an admission to the YFCC Crisis Care Unit. The YFCC Crisis Care Unit:

  • Provides psychiatric evaluation, medication management (if advised), individual and group psychotherapy, recreational activities, coordination with outpatient treatment providers, and other interventions as needed for up to 72 hours.
  • Is not a replacement for physical healthcare services provided by hospital emergency departments. Youth and families experiencing a physical healthcare crisis should call 911 or seek help at their local hospital emergency department (ED) or urgent care.
  • Is not a replacement for inpatient psychiatric hospitalization.
