CHA provides emergency and inpatient psychiatry services for all ages. In addition to the Psychiatric Emergency Service within the Cambridge Hospital emergency department, CHA has adult psychiatry inpatient units, a geriatric inpatient service, and distinct inpatient units for young children and adolescents. In all cases the goal is to evaluate, assess, and treat patients, and to discharge them to the most appropriate care setting.
CHA offers a wide variety of outpatient psychiatry programs primarily at the Central Street Health Center in Somerville and the Macht Building at Cambridge Hospital. Individual, child, adult, and geriatric services are available, along with
psychopharmacology and psychological testing. There are also many therapy groups available for different needs.
Expert services for learning and developmental disabilities are available at our Cambridge Hospital.
