The unit provides assessment, stabilization and initial treatment for the acutely psychiatrically ill adolescent between the ages of 13 and 18 years. A multidisciplinary treatment approach is used and effective hospital/community partnering facilitates the treatment of the adolescent and his/her family within the context of their community. The newly opened 10-bed Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Stabilization Unit (CAPSU) serves young people from across the Fraser Health region, aged six to 17, who need a five to seven-day stay in hospital for stabilization.
The Adolescent Crisis Response Program (ACRP), also located at the hospital, serves children and adolescents ages 6-18 years who are experiencing a mental health crisis, and living in the communities of Surrey, White Rock, Delta and Langley. ACRP provides assessment, short-term crisis intervention and short-term resource coordination and referral. Child and Youth Mental Health Services are comprised of multidisciplinary teams in each community providing community-based treatment and support services to children, adolescents and their families.
