The children’s behavioral health inpatient program at Gulfport Behavioral Health System offers short-term treatment to children (4 to 7 years old) who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis. The goal of the program is to stabilize the child’s emotional or mental health issue and teach them and their family to develop coping skills that can help avoid future crisis after they leave our care. We are the only behavioral health facility on the Gulf Coast that treats children as young as 4 years old.

The program features evidence-based treatment methods and daily meetings with doctors, therapist and other behavioral health professionals. Each treatment plan is individualized to meet the specific needs of the child. A free, confidential assessment determines the initial level of care a patient receives.

We proudly offer all our programs to active military members and their families through TRICARE.

If you or someone you love is struggling with depression, anxiety or another behavioral health issue, call us for a free, confidential assessment. We are available 24 hours a day.
