The new Center for Inpatient Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Somerville will provide a transformative continuum of patient and family-centered care for diverse youth with mental health needs.
The Adolescent Unit is a 21 bed secure psychiatric unit that provides care for children between the ages of 13 and 17. The unit is located in Somerville Hospital.
