About This ClinicPrint

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Hospital 

UnityPoint Health – Meriter offers the only community-based inpatient child and adolescent psychiatry program in south central Wisconsin. Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) serves young people ages 6-18 with severe behavioral health challenges such as depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and self-harming behaviors. 


We welcome referrals from psychiatrists, mental health professionals, social service agencies, school systems and insurance companies. We evaluate potential patients for admission to learn which treatment option – inpatient, partial or outpatient – is most appropriate to the individual's needs.

Emergencies: If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911
