Halifax House – Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) for Children and Teens
Halifax House is Crisis & Counseling Centers’ (C&C’s) CSU for children and teens, located in Winslow. Our trained staff works collaboratively with clients and their families to provide stabilization from crisis and address issues such as suicidal behavior, aggression, depression, anxiety and family conflicts.
The Halifax House accepts children from age 6 to 17 with valid clinical reasons where safety and/or significant mental health destabilization are a factor. The Halifax House is a voluntary program, not a locked unit and stays are intended to be short and intensive, with clients being assessed by CSU staff on a daily basis. All medication is administered by Certified Residential Medication Assistants, in consultation with the agency’s Registered Nurse, as needed
A family discharge plan is developed prior to the client returning to the community to help the family and child or teen transition from Halifax to home
