Who We Are……
The UNC Health Care at WakeBrook Inpatient Unit is a 28 bed unit that provides acute mental health treatment services, including assessment, therapeutic interventions and stabilization. Our goal is to is to help patients with mental illness become well in a safe and supportive setting. A team of professionals provide individualized care, and aim to see that those receiving care develop new coping skills and a safe plan for leaving the hospital as soon as they are able. These services are offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year. All services are provided by professionally trained licensed medical and clinical staff.
What We Do……
Our program is designed for anyone who is age 18 and above who would benefit from acute psychiatric stabilization. Our team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, occupational and recreational therapists. We try to identify and define the problem or problems being experienced through interview of the patient and family, through medical tests, and through other methods of assessment. Once we begin to understand the problems, we can then plan required treatment. Under the direction of a physician and clinical nurse manager we provide a nursing assessment upon admission, psychiatric assessment by a psychiatrist, psychotropic medication management, daily multidisciplinary programming, substance abuse evaluation (if warranted), and discharge planning and referral for the next appropriate level of care.
The vision of WakeBrook Inpatient Unit is to be a leader in providing collaborative, customer-centered mental health care utilizing an innovative, recovery-based model of treatment.
