Psychiatric Medical Institute for Children (PMIC)

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 twelve facilities in Iowa determines its own criteria for eligibility, service descriptions, and direct-care provider requirements.
