Adult Mental Health Inpatient Care

Fairview Behavioral Services and HealthEast Mental Health Services offer compassionate care in a safe, inpatient setting for adults experiencing severe psychiatric problems. Our goal is to provide every patient with a thorough assessment followed by intensive, focused intervention. Inpatient treatment is short-term, so every patient will leave the hospital with a discharge plan designed to help maintain the progress they made during treatment.


Many specialized care options are available to our patients, including secure stabilization, safety monitoring and a dedicated schizophrenia/psychosis team. All patients have access to the following services: 
  • Chemical dependency evaluation and treatment as needed
  • Discharge planning
  • Group therapy
  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Individual treatment planning
  • Medical management of psychiatric disorders
  • Medication management and education
  • Occupational and recreational therapy
  • Psychiatric assessment and diagnosis
  • Psychological testing
  • Stress management training
  • 24-hour intake

Family Matters

We encourage family involvement throughout the treatment process. Outpatient treatment is available to both clients and family members to help with continuity of care after a patient is discharged.

Our Care Team

The treatment team, under the direction of a psychiatrist, works with each patient to create and implement a personalized care plan. All patients have access to variety of care options, including psychiatrists and residents from the University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry or HealthEast Mental Health and Addiction Services.    


Our multidisciplinary team includes:
  • Chaplains
  • Consulting physicians
  • Family therapists
  • Nurses
  • Occupational/recreational therapists
  • Psychiatric technicians
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychotherapists
  • Social workers/case managers
All clients must be under the care of a psychiatrist. A referral to a psychiatrist will be made if a client does not have one.
