Are parents or legal guardians able to stay with their children at the YFCC?

Parents/legal guardians are required to stay with their children during the triage, assessment, and intake process (if CCU admission criteria are met). Admission to the YFCC Crisis Care Unit is determined by the assessment and screening process. Parents/legal guardians of youth admitted to the YFCC Crisis Care Unit are provided regular access to their children and given frequent status updates. Parents/legal guardians are not allowed to stay in the Crisis Care Unit overnight. Visiting hours for the Crisis Care Unit are being determined.
