Peninsula Regional Medical Center is making it easier for community members to access the emotional and behavioral health support they need.

In spring 2016,  the Peninsula Regional Medical Center Foundation celebrated the opening of the new Rebecca and Leighton Moore Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit at PRMC. The new unit provides outpatient behavioral healthcare for children as young as four years old.

PRMC also offers expert behavioral healthcare for adults with mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Our services include psychiatric assessments, individual therapy, group therapy, psychoeducation and medication management. 

The highly skilled clinical team provides compassionate behavioral healthcare to help patients successfully manage their illness and maintain optimal activity at home or school. The Outpatient Wellness Clinic treats children with anxiety and stress; ADHD; bipolar disorder; conduct disorders; depression; grieving and loss; obsessive compulsive disorder; personality disorders; post-traumatic stress disorder; and schizophrenia.

While adults often feel depressed due to stress at work or home, financial problems or medical conditions, children deal with much different issues. Often, they are struggling to cope with pressure to excel in an increasingly competitive academic environment or are victims of bullying. These all-too-common situations can lead to behavioral health problems such as anxiety, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorders.

If parents notice signs of depression in their children, such as changes in sleep and appetite, isolation from friends, behavior problems or lack of interest in activities for two weeks or more, they should call the clinic for help.

For patients who enter PRMC through the Emergency Department, the behavioral health team provides 24-7 assessments and referrals. To reach our ED behavioral health staff, call 410-543-7161.

Outpatient Services

We offer outpatient therapeutic services, including individual therapy and medication management, for children and adults. After an initial behavioral health assessment, our clinical team will provide a customized treatment plan that is designed to help patients successfully manage their illness and maintain optimal activity at home, work, or school. If you or a loved one needs help, call PRMC’s Outpatient Wellness Clinic at 410-543-7119. The clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The PHP is provided Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The program enables patients to receive intensive behavioral health treatment during the day while remaining in the community. Patients will participate in daily therapeutic group activities and receive weekly consultations, including medication review and management, from a board-certified psychiatrist. The PHP is also helpful in assisting patients in their transition from inpatient care. Transportation can be arranged on a case-by-case basis through PRMC. To learn more, call 410-543-4738.

Inpatient Services

The 13-bed inpatient unit provides intensive behavioral health treatment for adult patients whose acute symptoms require 24-hour care and supervision. The inpatient unit accepts voluntary and involuntary patients. To speak with our staff, call 410-543-7162.
