Acute Psychiatric Services at Mississippi State Hospital include one female receiving unit (building 63) and two male receiving units (buildings 201 and 203).  After a new patient is evaluated, an interdisciplinary treatment team works together with the patient to prepare an individualized treatment plan.  The team considers the existing strengths of the patient and provides therapeutic activities to improve social, emotional and physical functioning.  Acute Services also include a medical psychiatry receiving unit (building 87) which provides short-term care for men and women who have significant medical needs in addition to psychiatric problems.
