Inpatient and Outpatient Programs at Belmont Pines Hospital

Your child’s or adolescent’s mental health is important to you, to them, to your family and to their future — and at Belmont Pines Hospital, we understand that. That’s why we offer a full continuum of inpatient and outpatient programs to meet the needs of children and adolescents.

Psychiatrists specially trained to treat children’s mental health are onsite seven days a week. Therapies are performed by licensed clinicians under the direction of board-certified psychiatrists, including:

  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Activity therapy
  • Experiential therapy

Mental health, teens and children

Early identification and treatment of mental health disorders in children and adolescents is key to preventing long-term damage, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. This crucial time in their lives means that mental health issues can affect their academics, their social relationships, their social skills and their choices.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nearly one out of every seven adolescents experiences mental health conditions and one in six children, so identifying and treating these early can make a positive impact on your loved one’s life.

Some signs and symptoms of mental health issues to watch out for in your loved one:

  • Lack of interest in things they previously enjoyed
  • Frequent worrying or nervousness
  • Social withdrawal
  • Change in attitude
  • Irritability or anger
  • Sleep issues

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs from Belmont Pines Hospital are for children and teens ages 5-18 struggling with mental health issues who may not require the full-time, around-the-clock care of an inpatient mental health program.

Partial Day Treatment

If counseling is not working or if the issues are too difficult for counseling, a more-intensive Partial Day Treatment Program may be what your child or teen needs. Our evidence-based program offers therapeutic groups, individual and family therapy led by licensed practitioners, self-esteem building and team-building activities, problem solving and coping strategies and medical services by a child psychiatrist and registered nurse.

Summer Day Treatment

The Summer Day Treatment Program from Belmont Pines Hospital takes place throughout the Summer starting in June and provides mental health treatment for children and teens ages 5-18.

This part-time day program for young children ages 5-7 and full-time day program for ages 8-18 is helpful when a child’s or teen’s behavioral issues are too difficult to manage in a routine counseling session.

Your Child’s or Teen’s Safety Is a Top Priority

Patient security is a priority. Patients in our care are continuously monitored by staff – at least once every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day – with supporting documentation. All units are secured and all patient rooms have motion detectors internally and at the doorways. Additionally, there is video camera monitoring in patient care areas and hallways.
