We assess and diagnose adults in crisis, so that we can begin treatment to provide the safety and stability that enables full recovery. We assess and treat adults in the following settings:
Adult Psychiatry Inpatient Unit
We admit individuals ages 18-49 years old for psychiatric and significant medical problems. Expert medical, surgical, and neurological teams are available for patient consultations. Our 15-bed unit is located at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) downtown campus. We admit individuals ages 18 to 49 years old.
We are based in an academic and general medical center, allowing for collaborative care of patients who have both psychiatric and significant medical problems. Expert medical, surgical, and neurological teams are available for patient consultations.

Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES)
Psychiatric Emergency Services (PES) is a 24-hour dedicated Psychiatric Emergency Room, staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, nurse technicians, social workers, and peer recovery specialists. The team services the adult patient population (18+ years), which includes geriatric and obstetrical patients.
We treat patients with higher levels of acuity (suicidal or homicidal ideation, Emergency Petitioned, and more), as well as those with lower levels of acuity. PES further offers two outpatient bridge clinics for patients:
- with Opioid Use Disorders who need treatment with Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
- with general psychiatric issues who need medication management and therapy during engagement in outpatient treatment.
