Information on Services

Albert J. Solnit Children's Center- South Campus is a state-administered Psychiatric facility for Connecticut's children who are under the age of eighteen.
The Solnit Center provides comprehensive care to children and adolescents with severe mental illness and related behavioral and emotional problems who cannot be safely assessed or treated in a less restrictive setting.
The South Campus consists of four coed hospital units and three female adolescent psychiatric residential treatment facility cottages (PRTF).

Upon evaluation and admission to Solnit Center, we begin planning the youth's treatment and discharge plan. It is our belief that placement is only one component in a continuing system of psychiatric treatment.
When a youth is ready to leave Solnit Center, the core team assesses the youth's needs and coordinates services for post-facility care. We make every effort to return the youth to his/her home at the end of treatment. When either the youth or the family is not able to make a home goal possible, our staff work with the family, DCF Area Office, and others who are actively involved in the child's care to find the best possible solution. Options may include either a placement in a foster home, group home or residential treatment facility.
