Child and adolescent inpatient unit (CAIP)
The regional inpatient unit consists of 13 secure beds dedicated to children and adolescents under the age of 18 who live anywhere within the Waterloo-Wellington counties.

Our inpatient services are located within a beautiful, bright environment with a therapeutic focus on short-term assessment and stabilization for children and adolescents presenting with severe and acute mental health symptoms. Our goal is to complete a comprehensive assessment, initiate treatment and provide recommendations for follow-up to the patient, family and children’s mental health care providers. The inpatient services consist of a multidisciplinary team of child psychiatrists, social workers, child and youth workers and nurses.

While under care on our inpatient services, patients are expected to participate in activities such as academic study time, and as well to attend group programs that take place throughout the day. Our daily programs focus on social skills such as anger management, communication skills, coping skills and relaxation techniques.
