The Child Inpatient Unit is a 12-bed mental health unit for children under 13 from across Victoria.
We involve your whole family in your assessment and treatment. In some cases, your family members may be able to stay with you while you’re in hospital.
If your child is in the Emergency Department or admitted to hospital for medical care or surgery, and also has any emotional, psychological or psychiatric issues, they can also receive care from our Child & Youth Mental Health Service.
We provide the following services:
You need a referral from your GP, specialist or health care provider to access this service.
Children are usually referred from our community outpatient services.
