At Mount Sinai Medical Center we treat a wide range of psychiatric illnesses and behavioral disorders, including major depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and psychosis. We are a Baker Act Receiving Facility.

The units provide services to acutely ill patients who require short-term hospitalization and care for their psychiatric disorders, as well as those patients who require longer-term stabilization in a secure environment.

Our approach

At Mount Sinai, we take an interdisciplinary approach to our patients’ treatment. An individualized treatment plan is developed collaboratively by the Treatment Team. The Treatment Team consists of Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Registered Nurses, Mental Health Technicians, Patient Care Technicians, Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists, Certified Activity Specialist, Social Workers and Occupational Therapist. Other specialty professionals are available as needed. Each patient participates in a variety of treatment modalities. We offer an assortment of services including medication management and education, creative and expressive therapy, activity therapy, coping skills, relaxation techniques, community resources, individual and group therapy, stress management, anger management, recreation and discharge planning. Electroconvulsive Therapy is also a treatment option.

We strive to create a quiet, safe, and supportive setting that fosters healing and growth. The daily activities we prescribe for our patients direct them toward their return to the community.
