Mental Health Services for Children, Teens, and Families.
Behavioral Health Services at Denver Health has two treatment programs for children and teens suffering from emotional difficulties.
Adolescent and Child Inpatient Mental Health Services
The inpatient psychiatric department at Denver Health has 16 beds for children and teens, ages 8-17 years, with significant emotional and mental health issues. Our approach to treatment is based on current medical research showing what works best for children, teens, and families in crisis. Once intensive, inpatient therapy is complete, care continues in the outpatient setting with customized treatment plans.
