Child /Adolescent Services
Since 1984, the Psychiatric Center for Children and Adolescents has served youth between the ages of 12-18 years old who require the safe supervision and expert resources of an acute inpatient evaluation and treatment. Intensive partial hospitalization is offered through the BEST (Behavioral, Educational Skills Training) program for children attending grade school, K through 6th grade.

Emergent Psychiatric Triage
Licensed emergency psychiatric counselors are trained to evaluate and triage patients who come to the Emergency Department with psychiatric symptoms or illness from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 a.m. daily. The Emergency physician provides a medical screen and clearance, if required and then refers the patient to the triage counselor for a psychosocial and risk evaluation and safe disposition. These counselors work closely with the Crisis Services of Spokane Mental Health to assist the patient in receiving an individualized treatment in the least restrictive setting possible for their safety needs.
