WHAT IS AN ASSESSMENT?
A behavioral health assessment is a clinical interview to determine what type of mental or behavioral health services will be most appropriate for you. Your past medical and mental health history will be reviewed. Family or friends can be supportive in the process and are welcome to attend. Once the assessment is completed, we will collaborate with our team of mental health professionals to determine a recommendation for your care. Assessments are completed in person and take approximately 1 hour to complete.
Sometimes, inpatient hospitalization is needed to help stabilize acute individuals experiencing an acute mental health crisis. Our Outpatient Programs (both Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Program) address the needs of adults or youth who do not require the structure of an inpatient stay, but need with assistance with general challenges including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and psychiatric disorders. Clients may be enrolled directly into the program from the initial point of assessment and referral, or they can be “stepped down” from the inpatient setting. Outpatient is designed for individuals who would benefit from a structured day program to assist with the development of more adaptive coping skills.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN ASSESSMENT?
Anyone can contact us to request an assessment. This may be a friend, family member, or the patient themselves. The assessment is completely confidential and we will not share your information with others. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with questions.
