Willow Creek offers a safe, caring inpatient program for children ages 5 to 17 who have acute psychiatric problems including depression, bipolar disorder, psychosis and other psychological disorders. We understand the decision to admit your child to an inpatient program is not an easy one. We’re here to help your child get better.
Children, adolescents and adults have different care needs. Our youth care team is led by a skilled psychiatrist who specializes in child and adolescent mental illness. The staff includes registered nurses and master’s level therapists. The Children’s unit serves kids ages 5 to 12, and the separate Adolescent unit serves teens ages 13-17. Teens age 18 and older who need inpatient care are welcome in our Adult program.
Our team’s ultimate goal is to help young patients improve their clinical status, regain their quality of life and return to daily activities in their homes, schools and communities.
