The Psychiatric Medical Institute for Children (PMIC) is designed especially for children who present serious emotional and behavioral problems. The basic foundation of this program is designed to develop positive self-concepts, social, and problem-solving skills while integrating child and family treatment components.

The PMIC system is intended to serve children who need an intensive treatment program for an extended period of time. Each of the facilities in Iowa determines its own criteria for eligibility, service descriptions, and direct-care provider requirements.

Bremwood offers a PMIC program as well as Supervised Apartment Living (SAL) program. The PMIC program serves children who display inappropriate behaviors, have difficulty with social skills, or are unable to enjoy daily life due to mental illness. The SAL program empowers youth to work toward independence and self-sufficiency while still receiving support and supervision. Individuals build skills while attending school, working, and developing other life skills.
