UnityPoint Health Meriter touts expansion provided to children dealing with mental health issues

MADISON (WKOW) — UnityPoint Health Meriter is expanding its facilities to provide more mental health services to children.

The healthcare provider broke ground on its project to improve child and adolescent psychiatry services. It will add more rooms and treatment areas to its location on Raymond in Madison.

“CAP” provides mental health care for young people ages 6-18. During Monday’s ceremony, Tina Noel shared her story about seeking treatment for her daughter.

“For the parents out there, trust in the skills of the experts at CAP, these little people don’t come with instruction manuals, for the providers, thank you for your compassion and expertise with our children,” said Noel.

Meriter wants to treat more children for mental health issues and plans to nearly double capacity by 2020.
