behavioral crisis center

A behavioral health crisis is a challenging time for a parent and child. We are here to help. Kids experiencing a mental health crisis require a more specialized environment to best serve their needs. The behavioral health crisis center at Dayton Children’s was designed to evaluate children in a safe, caring and effective way. In the crisis center, trained behavioral health clinicians will provide an assessment and connect children to the appropriate services, getting them help quicker.

Behavioral health crisis center operating hours:

Monday through Friday             8:00 am to midnight

Saturday and Sunday               12:00 pm to midnight
