Adult Behavioral Health Unit


We want to offer each patient compassionate, comprehensive mental health care, supporting your healing with dignity.


Glendale Memorial's Adult Behavioral Unit (ages 18-65) offers comprehensive multimodal therapies and individual treatment planning tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients are under close medical supervision, which includes careful monitoring of medications and behavior to protect the patient from self harm or harm of others. 

Glendale Memorial is Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) designated by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health Services.  Health care facilities that meet LPS criteria and process requirements are authorized to evaluate and treat patients involuntarily detained. 

To be admitted to the unit, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Suicide attempts/or ideation, homicidal ideation or threats or assaultive behavior 
  • Command hallucinations directing harm to self or others
  • Psychiatric symptoms (hallucinations, delusions, agitation, depression) severe enough to cause bizarre behavior (catatonia, mania, incoherence, autism) 
  • Mental disorder causing a major disability in social, interpersonal, occupational functioning 
  • Mental disorder that causes inability to maintain nutrition and self care
  • Failure of outpatient psychiatric treatment possibly due to increasing psychiatric symptoms, inadequate response to psychotropic medications 

Not all patients are accepted into Glendale Memorial's Adult Behavioral Health Unit.  Exclusion criteria include: substance abuse disorders; dementia; acute medical or surgical illnesses or terminal illness without a treatable psychiatric disorder; unable to participate due to physical limitations; and anyone convicted of a violent crime.
