Youth Behavioral Health Hospital

North Central Health Care Wausau Campus

The North Central Health Care Youth Behavioral Health Hospital (YBHH) serves individuals for a variety of mental health and substance use problems. Youth served are typically deemed an immediate danger to themselves or others. Interdisciplinary teams include psychiatrists, social workers, dieticians, therapists, nurses, and behavioral health professionals. These team members provide support and services individually with each youth as well as collaboratively to create a personalized treatment plan. We center services around the youth and proactively involve their caretakers in aftercare plans that will improve the quality of life after their stay.
