Inpatient Child Psychiatry
12 North is a 10-bed inpatient psychiatric service for children aged five through twelve. The unit is staffed by a team of mental health professionals and special education teachers who take a personal interest in each child.
Our goal is to help our patients be more successful in school and with friends.
We evaluate and treat
Every child receives a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary evaluation by our team of child psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and special education teachers.
Our unique program addresses medical, psychiatric, psychological, psycho-educational, and family issues.
Patients may be admitted through the hospital's Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program, through the children's outpatient clinic, by transfer from other units of University Hospital, by transfer from another psychiatric facility, or they may be admitted directly by one of the attending faculty.

If this is a psychiatric emergency call our 24-hour psychiatric emergency room at (631) 444-6050.
