Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital

Vive Adolescent Care is an inpatient psychiatric hospital and acute stabilization facility working primarily with adolescents and families that are struggling with mental health crisis. We are an Insurance based, 14 to 30-day inpatient facility dedicated to giving our clients the tools needed to achieve a productive, happy, meaningful, long life.

It's always been hard to be a teenager, but it is more challenging than ever right now. Between social media expectations and the isolation from the pandemic, teens fall into unhealthy coping behaviors to seek relief. Inpatient psychiatric hospitals provide mental health help for teens in crisis.

The transition into adulthood is stressful for teens as they become more self-sufficient. They know that soon they must make decisions that will shape their entire future. There is hope if your teen is currently facing an immediate, acute mental health crisis. You are not alone, and neither are they. You can access inpatient treatment for your child, so they remain safe and get the support they need.

During their inpatient hospital stay, your teenager receives:

  • Safety monitoring
  • Diagnosis clarification
  • Treatment plan creation
  • Medication schedule determination (as medically appropriate)

Inpatient psychiatric hospitals provide treatment for mental health-related issues that depend on various factors:

  • Your child's mental health condition.
  • Your teen's overall physical health and any specific physical health conditions.
  • The treatment prescribed and services indicated to support healing and recovery.

Mental Health conditions in teens require significantly different approaches to those for adults. So, inpatient psychiatric hospitals offer specialized programs specifically for teenagers.

Teenage Psychiatric Hospital

Watching your teen go through a difficult time with their mental health is heart-wrenching. You have no doubt done everything imaginable to make a difference for them. But they continue to struggle with anxiety, depression, or self-harm. Or they have thoughts of suicide, or perhaps they even made an attempt.

When your teen reaches a crisis point, it is time to consider a teenage psychiatric hospital. An acute mental health crisis is not something a parent can manage. Your teen needs a team of clinical and medical experts trained to deal with mental health crisis situations in teens.

In a teenage psychiatric hospital, your teen receives the professional medical attention they need. They have their issues clarified and have a treatment plan specifically tailored to support their healing journey.

Vive Adolescent Care, an exclusive teenage psychiatric hospital, supports teens struggling with mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies, self-harm, mental health crises, and other moderate to severe mental health issues.

  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue

  • Feeling sad or overwhelmed
  • Losing interest in activities previously enjoyed

Suicidal Tendencies

Suicidal tendencies are when someone struggles with thoughts of ending their life, either actively or passively. Active suicidal ideation is when they create a plan to end their life. Passive ideation is when they wish they were dead but have no plan to act.


Self-harm is when someone causes themselves physical pain deliberately to relieve difficult emotions. Teens that cut themselves may see the blood as taking away the negative feelings. Sometimes physical pain overcomes a feeling of numbness or feeling dead inside by making the person feel more alive.

Mental Health Crises

A Mental Health Crisis is when your teen's mental state puts them in danger. They may be a danger to themselves or others. Symptoms include:

  • Rapid mood swings
  • Agitation, often with pacing
  • Talking rapidly or non-stop
  • Irrational or confused thinking
  • Paranoia where everyone is "out to get them"
  • Loss of touch with reality
  • Hallucinations, delusions
  • Uttering threats to others or about themselves
  • Suicidal thinking and saying things like "I want to die"

Vive's teenage psychiatric hospital offers various levels of care customized to the mental health needs of your teen.

Inpatient Mental Health Hospitals

Inpatient mental health hospitals provide acute inpatient care. When your teen's physician recommends their condition cannot be effectively treated in an outpatient setting, the most intensive care is inpatient mental health hospitals.

Your teen receives 24-hour skilled nursing care, observation, interventions, and direct oversight from a psychiatrist. Inpatient mental health hospitals also assemble a coordinated physician-led team of mental health professionals to quickly stabilize severe symptoms.

Mental Health Inpatient Treatment

Mental health inpatient treatment involves at least an overnight stay, but usually, your teen would stay for less than 30 days. A teen admitted into mental health inpatient treatment is generally in an acute phase of a mental illness, so they need help 24-hours a day.

To prepare for mental health inpatient treatment, pack a suitcase for your teen with at least 3 changes of clothes and whatever they need for personal grooming. Once you arrive, you meet with an experienced Vive Adolescent Care team member who explains the next steps.

Once your teen is checked in for mental health inpatient treatment, the Vive Adolescent Care team creates an individualized treatment plan. A typical stay for mental health inpatient treatment is one to two weeks. The goal is to help your teen through their current mental health crisis.

Your Role as a Parent

You continue to play a significant role during and after your teen's mental health inpatient treatment. You provide the foundation for the creation of a practical aftercare plan. So, you will receive all the information you need to continue to support your teen in the long term. You are not alone.

In Conclusion

Inpatient psychiatric hospitals are available to provide treatment for your teen during a mental health crisis. Inpatient treatment assures your child is safe and gets the help they need on their healing journey. There is hope if you and your teen currently face a mental health crisis.
