Adolescent and Child Inpatient Mental Health Services

BHS Classroom WebThe Inpatient Psychiatric department at Denver Health has 21 beds for children and teens, ages six to 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.
