About
The caring, compassionate staff of Davis Behavioral Health Unit, part of the Behavioral Health network of Utah, is committed to providing patient-centered care and treating all aspects of the patient from a biological, psychological, social, and spiritual perspective. We provide crisis management services and inpatient psychiatry.   Our treatment team includes licensed psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, masters-level therapist/clinician, recreational therapists, registered nurses, and nutritionists. The treatment team establishes a personalized care plan in a safe, therapeutic environment based on the patient’s individualized psychiatric assessment by a licensed medical provider and psychosocial assessment by a mental health therapist/clinician.

Among the symptoms and conditions we assess and treat include:

  • Anxiety - Difficulty sleeping; feelings of restlessness, panic or impending doom; sudden inability to deal with stressful situations
  • Depression - Inability to accept or adjust to loss; significant change in appetite, sleep patterns or energy levels; feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness or guilt; loss of interest in pleasurable activities
  • Chronic Pain - Uncontrolled, continuing pain; use of multiple pain medications
  • Psychosis - Seeing, smelling, hearing or feelings things that aren't there
  • Paranoia - Accusing others of negative behaviors or thoughts that are unrealistic; combative or violent behavior
  • Cognitive Changes - Significant memory loss; impaired judgment and insight; inability to take care of day-to-day needs; acute deterioration of coping skills and judgment
  • Suicidal or Homicidal Feelings - Thoughts of death, suicide or murder; self-injuring behavior
  • Phobias - Fears that limit daily activity
  • Mood disorders - Severe mood swings; feelings of elation, unlimited energy, pacing, or lack of sleep; sudden onset of severe depression

Program
Inpatient Psychiatry: Davis Behavioral Health Unit provides treatment to those 18 years of age and older who are in need of inpatient psychiatric care. Inpatient psychiatry is for individuals who are actively suicidal, homicidal, engaging in self-harming behaviors, experiencing psychosis, experiencing intense distress/crisis, and their day to day function is deteriorating to the point that they cannot perform their own activities of daily living. We work together as a multi-disciplinary team using only evidence based practices to help the patient understand and to cope with the source(s) of distress and guide them through the process to help them achieve their own highest level of mental, physical, social and spiritual well-being. An individualized care plan that is tailored to meet the patient’s needs is established to assist the patient in meeting their healthy goals. We provide medication management, individual therapy, family sessions, recreational therapy, group therapy, and case management. Our group therapy consists of psycho-educational groups, medication management groups, psychosocial groups, skills groups, and art therapy to provide the patient with healthy coping skills to help regulate their mood and behaviors.
