We want your child to feel as comfortable as possible during their stay at Garfield Park Behavioral Hospital, while still maintaining a secure environment. Please review the lists below to learn about the items you should pack for your child’s stay and the items that should be left at home.
We will provide hygiene supplies (toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.) for your child. If your child brings something that the treatment team believes is not safe for the unit, they will contact you and ask that you take it home.
