The celebration will take place Wednesday, June 8, from 1-2:30 p.m., at the site of the hospital, 4720 N. Clarendon Ave. in Chicago.

Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital for Children & Teens will offer evidence-based and trauma-informed treatment for children ages 5-12 and adolescents ages 13-17 who are struggling with behavioral health disorders, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance use disorders

  • Intellectual and developmental disorders
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

“Mental health is at the forefront of our nation’s concerns more than ever, and increased access to care has never been more critical,” said Shelley Zimmerman, CEO of Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital. “We take great pride in the significant role we will be able to play in providing innovative, patient-centered care and giving hope to the children, adolescents, and families who struggle every day with the challenges of mental health.”

Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital for Children & Teens will be one of three facilities that will operate as Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital.

Lawrence Ave. in Chicago; an adult hospital, which will also include specialty programming for seniors, is located at 4840 N. Marine Drive.
