Regional Mental Health Center’s Inpatient Psychiatric Unit is a 16 bed locked hospital unit for adults with acute psychiatric symptoms that require a high level of care due to risk to self or others. The unit is staffed by psychiatrists, RNs, a Therapist, Mental Health Technicians, an Activity Therapist, and a Dietician.
