Inpatient Behavioral Health Care
Mental health disorders affect millions of U.S. adults and adolescents each year. Family difficulties, career pressures or even a single traumatic event can cause emotional and mental conditions. A person in crisis may experience anxiety, depression, thought disturbances, loss of self-worth or, in extreme situations, contemplation of self-destructive behaviors.
At Franciscan Health, we understand these difficulties, and our goal is to help each individual recover and reach their best potential.
Adult inpatient services are offered through specially designated units at our hospitals in Dyer and Lafayette, Indiana.
Inpatient therapeutic programming can include:
- Individual and group psychotherapy
- Milieu therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Family sessions
- Medication management
A multidisciplinary approach to care that serves body, mind and spirit
Inpatient behavioral health treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team of caring professionals. Under the direction of a psychiatrist, the team strives to observe, assess, stabilize and transition patients into a less restrictive level of care and back into their homes and families.
Your behavioral health team can include:
- Board-certified general psychiatrists
- Board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists
- Clinical psychologists
- Registered nurses
- Licensed clinical social workers or psychiatric therapists
- Occupational and/or recreational therapists
- Behavioral health advisors
Behavioral Health care for medical inpatients
Our Indianapolis hospital provides medical patients with behavioral health interventions giving existing adult inpatients more comprehensive and inclusive care – providing treatment for both body and mind.
This dedicated unit, Medical 4 South, is staffed by medical surgical nurses trained in psychiatry to provide therapeutic care in a hospital setting. This enables Franciscan Health to provide an integrated approach to care and address psychiatric problems while still receiving medical care.
